  • Call for proposals: Greener Neighbourhoods Pilot Program

June 2023

Natural Resources Canada announced the second call for proposals under the Greener Neighbourhoods Pilot Program, which will support up to six Energiesprong-inspired aggregated deep energy retrofit projects in communities across Canada.

The purpose of the call:

  • Validate the technical and economic feasibility of Energiesprong-style deep energy retrofit approaches in multiple regions across Canada;
  • Explore innovative approaches to deep energy retrofits in Canada; and,
  • Build capacity and a business case for various aggregated deep energy retrofit approaches.


  1. Legal entities incorporated or registered in Canada, including:
    • Not-for-profit organizations, including social/affordable housing providers or housing cooperatives;
    • Community groups;
  2. Provincial, territorial, regional, and municipal governments and their departments and agencies, where applicable;
  3. Indigenous applicants:
    • Indigenous communities;
    • For-profit and not-for-profit businesses and organizations that clearly demonstrate ownership and controlling interests by Indigenous groups;
    • First Nations (bands or councils under the Indian Act);
    • Tribal councils;
    • Inuit organizations.

    The term “Indigenous” is understood to include Inuit, Métis, First Nations, Status Indian, and non-Status Indian individuals or any combination thereof.

  4. Academic institutions are not eligible to apply to the GNPP-Demo call;
  5. Proposals may be submitted by a for-profit third party, such as a consulting company, on behalf of an eligible applicant. However, the entity that will sign a contribution agreement with Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), must be the owner of the project assets (i.e., the housing provider).
