Green Freight Implementation

Green Freight Implementation



The Green Freight Implementation Phase is now accepting applications under Phase 2. The application period will be open from August 1, 2019 to September 30, 2019. Applicants of successful projects will be notified by email after November 1, 2019.

NRCan will provide cost-sharing contributions up to $100,000 to help fleets implement fuel saving and fuel switching technologies resulting from their assessment recommendations. Recommendations received through a freight assessment will help companies make data-driven investment decisions to help reduce their fuel costs, and in turn, their environmental impact. The implementation project will demonstrate how a fleet assessment can positively influence the way in which companies invest in fuel reduction initiatives, resulting in greater savings

For this initiative, NRCan will provide up to 50% of the funding towards fuel reducing technologies and/or up to 50% of the incremental value of a vehicle that utilizes lower carbon fuels. Participating companies will be responsible for contributing the remaining 50% which can include cash contributions, in-kind contributions (e.g. installation, training, etc.) or contributions from other levels of government.

To be eligible for NRCan funding in this round, eligible costs must be incurred and paid prior to March 31st, 2020.

Verification of your third party assessment, which must have been completed within the last year, will be required as part of your application process. Please note that applicants to this phase are not limited to assessment phase participants.
