The Limestone District School Board has completed a school infrastructure project thanks to energy efficiency upgrade funding provided by the Climate Action Incentive Fund of the Government of Canada.

The board received $443,101 to support roofing upgrades (building envelope project) at North Addington Education Centre last fall.

The Climate Action Incentive Fund (CAIF) is a federal-provincial cost matching program to help school boards make energy efficiency improvements and retrofits that reduce energy use, costs, and carbon  pollution.
The federal cost matching portion provides up to $40,869,000 and the provincial cost matching portion (through renewal programs) provides up to $61,303,500. Eligible expenditures under the program are those that have been incurred by school boards between May 15, 2020  and March 31, 2021 and have been approved by the federal government.
