As an update to our last post, the Federal government has now added information about applying for funding to support Indigenous involvement in reviews of the Federal Fisheries Act ($7,500 per Indigenous organization) and the Navigation Protection Act ($7,500 per Indigenous organization).

Applicants can pool their resources to apply for additional funding. The deadline to apply for this funding is September 23rd. The September 9th deadline still applies for the National Energy Board and Environmental Assessment Act reviews.

All of the information is available here.

Firelight provides policy, governance, regulatory and EA support – including assistance on developing input to public policy consultations in BC and elsewhere.
