About Our Grant Program

Alberta Ecotrust funds the people and projects working on Alberta’s most pressing environmental issues. We accomplish this primarily by investing in Alberta environmental non-governmental organizations to more effectively deliver programs, projects, and results that advance their environmental missions within our issue priorities.

Alberta Ecotrust presently has four grant streams: Community Grants, Major Projects, the EcoCity Edmonton Grant Program, and the CitiesIPCC Legacy Research Grant Program. Please review the deadlines for each of these grants in 2020 and mark your calendar appropriately. For Major Projects and Community Grants, all of the application information, including eligibility, guidelines, and the online application portal are posted on this page.
