Environmental Damages Fund Applicant's Guide and Form 2011

cover of publication

The Environmental Damages Fund (EDF) helps ensure that those who cause damage to the environment take responsibility for their actions. The EDF is a specified purpose account to manage funds received as compensation for environmental damage. Environment Canada administers the EDF on the behalf of the Government of Canada. Funds may be received through fines, court-ordered payments, out-of-court settlements, voluntary payments and international liability funds. The purpose of any contribution to the EDF is to restore the environment and conserve wildlife in a scientifically sound and cost-effective way. Each award directed to the EDF is accounted for separately, and is used to fund projects in the region where the offence occurred.
