Climate Change Adaptation Program

Program Summary:

NRCan’s Climate Change Adaptation Program (2022–2027) helps to position Canada’s regions and sectors to adapt to a changing climate. The Program aims to:

  1. Support decision-makers in identifying and implementing adaptation actions;
  2. Enhance adaptation knowledge and skills among Canada’s workforce; and
  3. Increase access to climate change adaptation tools and resources.

The Program is soliciting proposals for cost-shared projects that will make important contributions to advancing adaptation progress in Canada. Up to $15 million in funding may be awarded through this Call for Proposals.

We welcome proposals for projects that address climate change adaptation on the following topics (see the Applicant Guide for more information):

  • Adaptation skills
  • Economics
  • Emerging issues
  • Natural resource sectors

Projects requesting less than $150,000 of NRCan funding will not be considered through this Call for Proposals.

Note: The Government of Canada may fund up to 60% of the total project costs, with the exception of projects led by Indigenous organizations, governments or communities or by Territorial governments, where NRCan may fund up to 100% of the total project costs.
