Education and Capacity Building program now accepting proposals

October 27, 2016

The Education and Capacity Building (ECB) program has helped to support a variety of energy-awareness initiatives across Ontario and has now been updated with new rules and a revised program offering. The final program rules have now been posted to the ECB web page and the call for proposals is open until December 21, 2016 at 12:00pm EST.

The ECB program has been updated to provide clearer language, more accessible proposal requirements and longer proposal submission timelines – all of which are aimed to achieve the highest possible level of uptake in the program. The revised program includes a maximum funding allocation of $100,000 per initiative across three categories.

To date, the ECB has helped more than 30 communities and organizations develop a wide range of initiatives from solar electricity safety training for firefighters to workforce education programs to ensure First Nation community members have the necessary skills to develop, operate and maintain renewable energy projects for the long term. Read about these and many more on the ECB Current Initiatives page.

For more information, please visit the ECB web page, or send questions to or 416-969-6317.
