Environmental Damages Fund

Environment and Climate Change Canada

Environmental Damages Fund
The Environmental Damages Fund (EDF) follows the Polluter Pays Principle to help ensure that those who cause environmental damage or harm to wildlife take responsibility for their actions.

The EDF is a specified purpose account, administered by Environment Canada, to provide a mechanism for directing funds received as a result of fines, court orders, and voluntary payments to priority projects that will benefit our natural environment.

Priority Funding
Priority funding is given to projects that restore the natural environment and conserve wildlife in the geographic region where the original incident occurred. To be eligible, projects must be delivered in a cost-effective, technically feasible and scientifically sound manner, and must address one or more of the following EDF categories:

  1. Restoration (highest funding priority)
  2. Environmental Quality Improvement
  3. Research and Development
  4. Education and Awareness

Program Information and Downloadable Documents
Important information about the Environmental Damages Fund program criteria and downloadable documents are available to potential applicants and funding recipients.
Additional information about legal aspects of the EDF and downloadable documents are available to the legal community.
