The 2018-2019 Call for Proposals is now open for the Habitat Stewardship Program (Species at Risk Stream) and the Aboriginal Funds for Species At Risk Program (both Prevention Stream and Species at Risk Stream).
There will be no Call for Proposals for new projects for the 2018-2019 fiscal year for the National Wetland Conservation Fund, or the Prevention Stream of the Habitat Stewardship Program. Due to re-allocation of funds to other conservation priorities, these programs are fully allocated for the 2018-2019 fiscal year. Please note that all existing multi-year agreements under these programs are unaffected. For more information, please see the NWCF and HSP websites.
