Chemicals Management Plan Engagement and Outreach Contribution Program: Indigenous participation stream

Current status: Closed

The deadline to submit a proposal was March 7, 2022.

The Chemicals Management Plan Engagement and Outreach Contribution Program (the Contribution Program) provides time-limited contribution funding to support enhanced public participation, including Indigenous participation, in the Chemicals Management Plan (CMP). The CMP brings together a number of federal programs under a single strategy in order to understand and reduce the risks posed by chemicals.

Public participation supports all CMP activities (for example, risk assessment, risk management, research, monitoring and surveillance, policy development). The knowledge and perspectives of the public, including those disproportionately impacted by the harmful effects of chemical exposures, is provided through the participation of various stakeholders and partners in the CMP.

The Contribution Program will further support public participation in CMP activities through 2 funding streams: Indigenous participation and public participation.
