Canada’s Climate Change Adaptation Platform, chaired by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), brings together representatives from industry, Indigenous, municipal, professional and not-for-profit organizations, federal, provincial and territorial governments, and research institutions to address shared adaptation priorities. To support the objectives identified by Adaptation Platform working groups, Natural Resources Canada is soliciting proposals for cost-shared projects that address climate change adaptation in the areas of coastal management, energy, mining, economics, infrastructure, forestry and training.

Funding for this Call comes from NRCan’s Climate Change Adaptation Program. Up to $8.25 million in funding may be awarded through this process.

Projects should have a start date no earlier than March 1, 2018. The duration of the project should be based on the scope of the work. Unless an earlier date is specifically indicated in Annex 1, projects must be completed no later than November 30, 2020.

This call for proposals is focused on projects that can achieve results with broad impact. The federal government may fund up to 50% of the total cost of a project. Projects are expected to provide matching support, either cash or well documented in-kind contributions from sources other than the federal government. Letters of support from these sources that confirm the nature, amount and timing of their contributions must be included with the proposal. Projects requesting less than $100,000 of NRCan funding will not be considered.
