What Are Zero Emission Grants?

From 2023 to 2027, the Trottier Family Foundation is offering grants to support zero-emission mobility projects in Montreal. Each year, $20,000 will be offered to different groups or organizations that wish to implement initiatives to reduce greenhouse gases.

The purpose of these grants is to:
– support environmental initiatives
– encourage the development of zero emission mobility projects
– participate in the reduction of greenhouse gases
– reward creativity in service of the environment

The beneficiaries of the grants can be citizen or student groups, schools, daycares, NPOs or SMEs, as long as their headquarters or activities are in Montreal. The request must concern the purchase of equipment related to the sustainable mobility project and must not exceed $10,000. The number of projects rewarded may vary.

Entries are open until May 7, 2023!
To highlight sustainable mobility initiatives, the winning projects will be presented at Earth Day Canada’s annual fundraising event, the Urban Banquet, on June 8, 2023.

2023 Laureates

Cyclo Nord-Sud – 10k grant

    The project is to acquire an electric bicycle and trailer for zero-emission delivery. Cyclo Nord-Sud will use the bike for their Petites roues project, which aims to provide 100 needy children in CDN-NDG and Saint-Michel with a free bike. The aim is to introduce them to cycling, an essential means of sustainable mobility.


GRAME – 10k grant

    The grant will be used to purchase 3 electric bicycles and their maintenance equipment, as part of a pilot project involving 20 households in Lachine. These bicycles will be available on loan to these households, to encourage and promote the adoption of alternative transport behaviours to the solo car. After the pilot project, the bikes will also be made available to other Lachine residents, organizations, etc. They could also be used to help with tree planting as part of GRAME projects.
