Low Carbon Building Skills

Partnership Fund

The goal of the $2 million Low Carbon Basic Skills Partnership Fund is to encourage the creation of broad industry-labour-community partnerships that are necessary to:

  • address skills training shortages or gaps related to Low Carbon building,
  • support the development of innovative strategies to prepare for Low Carbon building skills requirements, which can encourage new and emerging green building practices, and,
  • generate greater awareness and collaboration around low carbon issues and opportunities in the design, construction and maintenance of buildings, through promotional information, engagement activities, and other initiatives.

Who may apply: All projects must involve a partnership of stakeholders who are interested in advancing and increasing their current and future workers’ Low Carbon building skills.

Each successful project may receive up to a maximum of $100,000.

Interested applicants are invited to submit proposals to the ministry no later than January 15, 2018 at LCBS.PF@ontario.ca.
