ICCE Community Funding Program
Calls for Cumulative Effects Proposals in Indigenous Communities
The Indigenous Centre for Cumulative Effects (ICCE) is calling for proposals from Indigenous communities who are engaged in cumulative effects assessment, management or monitoring projects regarding environmental, cultural, social, or health impact on their land, water or air now and in the future.
ICCE is an Indigenous-led not-for-profit association. The primary objective of ICCE is to help build and enhance the technical and scientific capacity of Indigenous communities to address cumulative effects, based on the values of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities across Canada.
ICCE is a network for Indigenous communities to access information, resources, and best practices about cumulative effects. ICCE recognizes there is much to draw from both Indigenous and Western-based knowledge. Navigating cumulative effects can be complex, but is rich with opportunity, and the Indigenous Centre for Cumulative Effects seeks to be a support to guide a community’s path.
Who Can Apply?
- First Nations communities, associations, and organizations
- Inuit communities, associations, and organizations
- Métis communities, associations, and organizations
- Any other Indigenous organizations working on cumulative effects
Eligible applicants may partner with other Indigenous communities and with external partners such as:
- Federal, provincial, territorial, or regional governments
- Non-governmental and not-for-profit organizations
- Academic and research institutions
What Kind of Projects are Eligible?
Projects that may be eligible for funding include:
- Baseline studies including environmental exposure, health, and/or Indigenous knowledge
- Developing a strategy or protocol for engagement/consultation as it relates to impact assessments and/or cumulative effects assessments for a targeted community, nation, or region.
- Educational and/or training events related to cumulative effects assessment and management
- Developing training tools for community-based cumulative effects assessment, management, or monitoring
- Cumulative effects associated with climate change
- Cumulative effects associated with Indigenous knowledge mobilization initiatives
- Community-based studies on cumulative effects and cultural practices and identity
- Cumulative effects on ecosystems and cultural dynamics as a result of pollutants (air, soil, water, etc.) and/or industrial development
The total value of ICCE’s Funding Budget for 2021-2022 is approximately three-million dollars. The goal of the program is to fund as many projects as possible representing as many regions as possible. The level of funding for each project will be determined on a case by case basis.
