Micro-Grant Program to Support Sustainability and Climate Adaptation Plan Implementation

The BC Tourism Climate Resiliency Initiative (BCTCRI) Project Two focuses on supporting tourism businesses and non-profits in British Columbia to adapt to climate change and enhance sustainability. This initiative offers micro-grants of up to $15,000 for projects that include purchasing equipment, updating infrastructure, implementing new systems, and obtaining sustainability certifications.

The primary goal of Project Two is to help tourism-related entities prepare for the impacts of climate change, reduce energy and resource consumption, and foster long-term sustainable practices. The funding is designed to support a wide range of activities that contribute to climate resilience, such as improving energy efficiency, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and promoting sustainable tourism practices.

Applications for these grants are evaluated on a first-come, first-served basis, with the application window open from May 13, 2024, to May 31, 2024. Eligible applicants include tourism businesses and non-profit organizations operating within British Columbia. The evaluation criteria focus on the project's potential impact on sustainability and climate resilience, as well as its feasibility and alignment with the goals of the BCTCRI.

By providing financial support and encouraging sustainable practices, the BCTCRI Project Two aims to strengthen the tourism sector's ability to withstand and adapt to climate-related challenges. This initiative is part of a broader effort by Destination BC to promote a sustainable and resilient tourism industry, ensuring that British Columbia remains an attractive destination for visitors while protecting its natural and cultural resources.
