Ontario’s Community Environment Fund Now Accepting Applications

The Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) is accepting applications from municipalities, First Nations and Métis communities, schools, colleges and universities, conservation authorities, incorporated not-for-profit organizations, and incorporated community groups for community-based projects funded by the Ontario Community Environment Fund (OCEF).

$325,000 has been made available for projects under the OCEF for 2016, with the funding coming from penalties levied when a business spills a contaminant or does not comply with Ontario’s environmental rules.

Funding is allocated to projects across 19 watershed areas in the province, focusing on:

  • Community-based environmental remediation and restoration
  • Research, education and outreach activities related to spill prevention and environmental remediation and restoration
  • Measures to build capacity to prevent or manage spills
