Alternative Response Measures Participant Funding Program – Pipelines

Status: Open to applications for funding

The Alternative Response Measures Participant Funding Program – Pipelines (ARMs PFP) provides Indigenous communities and organizations with funding to take part in developing and improving Canada’s response measures on federally regulated pipelines to address potential oil spills across Canada’s oil supply chain.

ARMs PFP funding supports expenses associated with reviewing and providing input on content in the ARMs Intention Paper and/or engagement sessions on ARMs led by the federal government and their related documents, as it relates to potential impacts from federally regulated oil pipeline spills.
