How It Works
After a grant is awarded, Tree Canada offers logistical support from our national office and on-the-ground support from one of our community advisors.
Grant recipients are also invited to participate in a series of webinars to guide them in selecting appropriate tree species for their planting site as well as maintenance tips.
Grant applications are accepted from October to early December the year before project implementation. We inform applicants by the following March if their project has received a grant or not.
Projects must be completed by the following spring or fall. Projects may also be waitlisted in case a new funding opportunity arises.
Funding is available to educational institutions, Indigenous communities, community groups or gardens, food banks, community housing projects, municipalities, or other groups interested in planting edible trees on publicly accessible sites.
$3,500 per project
