Clean Transportation

Transport Canada's support of the federal government's clean air agenda in the transportation sector goes beyond regulating air emissions. Our research and development program includes developing, testing, demonstrating and promoting new clean transportation technologies.

Clean Rail Academic Grant Program

Transport Canada is leading the Government of Canada’s efforts to reduce rail sector emissions by supporting research of new and emerging technologies.

The Clean Rail Academic Grant Program provides federal funds to academic research programs currently developing technologies and practices which aim to reduce air emissions from the rail sector. The Program also supports the communication of findings from funded research to other academic institutions or the rail industry.

The amount of funding being allocated for research and development projects (“R & D Projects”) in this funding round is $250,000.  Each application is eligible to receive $25,000.
