Habitat Stewardship Program - 2016-2017 Application
For More Information
Materials for Environment Canada habitat stewardship program (2015)
Funding under Habitat Stewardship Program (HSP) is separated into two streams:
• The HSP Species at Risk (SAR) Stream focuses on projects addressing the recovery of species at risk listed on Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA); and
• The HSP Prevention Stream focuses on projects addressing other species, beyond those listed on SARA, to prevent them from becoming a conservation concern.
The program will be accepting Expressions of Interest until December 18th 2015. The submission of an Expression of Interest is strongly encouraged, particularly for applicants who have not received HSP funding in the past or for those applying to a new stream. Please note that the EOI does not need to be submitted to the Office of Research.
Please see the guidelines for National priorities and Regional priorites (below).
In 2014 the HSP was strengthened such that funding became available to support projects that will proactively prevent species, other than species at risk, from becoming a conservation concern in addition to expanding the funding for species at risk. The activities must take place on private land, provincial and Crown land, or Aboriginal land, or in aquatic environments across Canada.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
Please submit your full proposal including an OR5 form to the office of Research.
