Green Industrial Facilities and Manufacturing Program
The Green Industrial Facilities Manufacturing Program (GIFMP) provides financial assistance to support the implementation of energy efficiency and energy management solutions designed to maximize energy performance, reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and increase competitiveness for industry in Canada.
GIFMP offers cost-shared financial support for a holistic and comprehensive suite of energy efficiency measures to be completed by March 2027 and is being delivered through two separate tracks:
Track 1: Energy Efficiency Solutions
For provinces, territories, and utilities and other eligible recipients with sufficient capacity and experience, as well as well-established industrial networks.
The Energy Efficiency Solutions track supports the industrial energy efficiency initiatives undertaken by those entities that align with Government of Canada objectives. The Energy Efficiency Solutions track offers funding of:
- Up to 100% of total eligible implementation costs to a maximum of $20 million per proposal to provincial-territorial and other governments or their departments and agencies, as well as Indigenous and registered not-for-profit organizations.
- Up to 75% of total eligible implementation costs to a maximum of $20 million per proposal to private sector for-profit organizations (such as utilities, training institutes, industry associations). This includes the combined funding from other Canadian government sources.
The initial call for proposals for Track 1 ended on March 31, 2023. The next call for proposals for Track 1 is anticipated to be launched in early 2024.
Track 2: Industrial Facility
For all industrial sectors and facility sizes, with a focus on filling gaps in reach and coverage across regions, sectors and activities.
The Industrial Facility track provides direct-to-industry support to help implement energy efficiency and energy management solutions within their respective facilities. Proposals can involve a single facility or multiple facilities. The Industrial Facility track offers cost-shared financial assistance of up to 50% of eligible implementation costs to a maximum of $10 million per proposal; the minimum contribution is $40,000 per proposal.
The 2023 call for proposals for Track 2 is now open and will close by July 31, 2023. For guidance on proposal requirements, interested parties can obtain an application package by emailing NRCan at: email@example.com.
