Apply for funding

One of the ways NWT CIMP generates research and monitoring of cumulative impacts and environmental trends in the NWT is by providing funding through an annual request for proposals process for both Scientific projects and Traditional Knowledge projects to:

  • NWT communities or groups
  • Indigenous, federal and territorial government departments and agencies
  • academic institutions and non-governmental organizations 

Scientific proposals must address Blueprint priorities.

An initial call for Letters of Intent (LOI) occurs in the fall and funding decisions are made in the spring. It is a competitive process in which reviewers and the NWT CIMP Steering Committee make funding recommendations to the program.

Information about the funding process (including instructions and templates) is available in the Scientific Proposal Guide and the Traditional Knowledge Proposal Guide.
