Years of Implementation

The Lake Simcoe/South-eastern Georgian Bay Clean-Up Fund is a grant administered by Environment and Climate Change Canada. It was originally funded from 2007–2012, with a second funding cycle expanded for 2012–2017. Although the focus is on improvements to water quality and aquatic habitat, implementation of BMPs, such as restoration or wetlands or installation of vegetated buffers, may have multiple benefits. Landowners are eligible to apply. Projects in priority areas (those identified in watershed or other plans) are preferred (ECCC 2015).

Amount of the Incentive
Generally one third of total project costs.
