Service standards, environmental grants and contributions

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) offers funding through various Grants and Contributions programs.

ECCC has developed Grants and Contributions service standards to publicly state the level of performance that clients can reasonably expect to encounter under normal circumstances.

These external service standards for Grants and Contributions are published to demonstrate ECCC's commitment to transparent management, accountability for results and citizen-focused service delivery.

Performance against these service standards will be tracked, and the results will be made available annually.

Service standard results for April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020

ECCC will provide the funding recipients with the final contribution agreement for the recipient’s signature within 15 working days of successful negotiation of the contribution agreement.
