Application process

Step 1: confirm available funds and project eligibility

For more information about available funds in your province or territory or to discuss a proposal idea, please contact your ECCC regional office.

If contacting ECCC about a proposal in GCEMS, please always reference the four-digit proposal ID number associated with the application.

Step 2: prepare your funding application using GCEMS

Visit the GCEMS application instructions page for technical assistance documents, tutorials, and support throughout your application preparation.

Step 3: submit your application

Once you have submitted your application through GCEMS, acknowledgment of receipt is automatically generated by the portal. If you do not receive an acknowledgment of receipt, it is recommended that you contact your regional office to confirm that your application was received.

Following the project review phase, you will receive notification on the status of your funding application.
