Frequently Asked Questions

Description

Ontario is launching Partners in Climate Action, a grant program designed to identify and support the development, testing and evaluation of innovative ideas to accelerate the adoption of low-carbon choices by Ontarians. The program will provide funding to projects that:

  • help Ontarians understand how their actions contribute to climate change;
  • identify and remove barriers to behaviour change;
  • motivate Ontarians to make low-carbon choices; and
  • evaluate behaviour-based approaches to achieving greenhouse gas emissions reductions.

The program is looking to fund projects that implement and evaluate behaviour-based, action-oriented approaches to achieving greenhouse gas reductions in Ontario. The program will not fund awareness raising campaigns, pure research projects, or investments in capital assets or infrastructure.

Approved projects could plan to start as early as fall 2017 and must be complete by March 2019.

Partners in Climate Action grant program is part of Ontario’s Climate Change Action Plan to fight climate change, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and transition to a low-carbon economy. The action plan and cap and trade program form the backbone of Ontario's strategy to cut greenhouse gas emissions to 15 per cent below 1990 levels by 2020.
