EcoAction Community Funding Program (EcoAction) is a national program that funds local action-based projects that produce measurable, positive effects on the environment.

The maximum EcoAction funding is $100,000 per project; the minimum funding amount request is $25,000 per project for a maximum duration of 36 months. A minimum of 50% of the total project value must come from sources other than the Government of Canada.

Projects must always address the environmental priority of the call for proposals and clearly demonstrate that activities are:

  • measurable
  • provide opportunities for community members to take action
  • produce a positive environmental impact

As indicated in the program's list of performance indicators (available via Grants and Contributions Enterprise Management System GCEMS), all projects must include:

  • at least one environmental indicator
  • at least one capacity building indicator
