    Land Stewardship and Habitat Restoration Program (LSHRP)

    In 2013, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry introduced the Land Stewardship and Habitat Restoration Program. This program essentially replaced the former Community Fisheries and Wildlife Community Involvement Program (CFWIP). The program offers eligible organizations support to undertake land stewardship and habitat restoration for biodiversity conservation.

    The Land Stewardship and Habitat Restoration Program fund is open to incorporated organizations across the province, including:

    • Aboriginal organizations and communities
    • Conservation organizations
    • Businesses
    • Municipal governments
    • Non-government organizations

    Unlike the former CFWIP program, this program is not available to individuals or unincorporated groups such as fish and game clubs, naturalist clubs or school groups.

    Eligible Projects

    The program's focus is on restoration, rehabilitation and enhancement projects that benefit fish, wildlife and biodiversity. Applicants are encouraged to link project submissions to landscape-level conservation or stewardship plans. Project eligibility includes:

    • Stream restoration, which includes fencing, riparian planting and fish habitat enhancement
    • Upland or terrestrial enhancements, including tree planting, windbreaks and corridors
    • Wetlands restoration, such as water control, plantings and excavation
    • Invasive species control through mechanical or ecological means, or site modifications.

    Detailed eligibility requirements are available in the application package. Please note that applicants must be incorporated entities. In addition, applicants are required to equally match the funding provided through the program, and program funding is limited to a maximum of $20,000 per project.

    Please consult the funding guidelines for detailed application instructions. The funding criteria and Application Form and Guidelines are available online.
