We fund pilot projects of retrofit initiatives that have the potential to reduce potable water use by at least 20% in a neighbourhood, facility or group of facilities. This funding helps Canadian cities and communities of all sizes promote water conservation.
All Canadian municipal governments; Municipal partners applying in partnership with a municipal government.
Pilot projects assess solutions in real-life conditions. They evaluate either a small-scale version of a project or a full-scale, replicable version.
This funding is for retrofit initiatives only. Your pilot project may compare several options or assess one option’s ability to reduce potable water use by at least 20% in a neighbourhood, facility or group of facilities. We do not fund the purchase, installation, replacement or repair of water mains as a stand-alone initiative. We will fund those activities if they are part of a broader, more innovative initiative.
We fund pilot projects that examine either the financial performance of environmentally proven initiatives, or the financial or environmental performance of a new initiative.Your pilot project should also assess the initiative’s social benefits (e.g., better health for local residents, job creation, youth engagement, whether people will use it).
Examples of plans you might develop:
- Grey water systems
- Rainwater collection and reuse
Deadline DateApplications are accepted year round, though this offer will close when all funding has been allocated.
