Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Not-for-profit organizations, First Nations and Métis communities, municipalities, schools, colleges, universities, and conservation authorities can get government grants for local projects in their watersheds.

This year, $325,000 from the Ontario Community Environment Fund (OCEF) will be shared among 19 watersheds across the province where environmental penalties were collected.

Past projects have successfully restored riverbanks by planting native trees and plants, helped protect the Great Lakes from invasive species, improved fish and wildlife habitat, and helped improve air quality and fight climate change in communities across Ontario.

The deadline to submit an application is March 31, 2016.
