Application Information

Wildlife Habitat Canada is no longer accepting grant applications for the 2018/2019 season. Please check back again next year during our call for proposals. 

Please note the deadline to apply has passed.

All grant funding applications submitted are reviewed by the Wildlife Habitat Canada Board of Directors in January. Applicants will be advised of funding decisions prior to the start of the fiscal year (i.e. April 1).

Proponents with approved projects will receive a Letter of Agreement for signature. Applicants must review and sign the letter in order to receive funds.  Successful proponents are expected to enter into a signed agreement with WHC regarding the exchange of funds and services.

For projects to be approved for funding, these guidelines in reporting are requirements for WHC’s performance indicators, measuring the effectiveness of our competitive grant program and the impact of the work being done.
