The schools in Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board received energy efficiency upgrades funded in part by the Government of Canada.
The Climate Action Incentive Fund (CAIF) is an Environment and Climate Change Canada program under the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change, delivering up to $218M. This program is funded from the proceeds of the federal carbon pollution pricing system. Programming is available in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and New Brunswick, where provinces had not committed to their own carbon pollution pricing systems in 2019-20. Eligible recipients would benefit from funding for projects to decrease energy usage, save money, and reduce carbon pollution.
The CAIF supports projects and measures undertaken by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), municipalities, universities, schools, hospitals (“MUSH sector"), and not-for-profit organizations.
