The Invasive Species Action Fund (ISAF) is a grant program designed to facilitate on-the-ground management and monitoring of invasive species in Ontario.

ISAF Objectives:

  • Supporting prevention, control, and eradication activities to reduce the threats posed by Ontario’s highest risk invasive species
  • Enabling planning, mapping, monitoring, and management actions at the local level
  • Assessing the impact of control activities and supporting planning for future work

Additional Program Information:

ISAF will enable successful applicants to catalyze action on invasive species management in Ontario in 2024, while also supporting them in planning and quantifying needs to complete work in the future.

This new program will also support goals identified in the Ontario Invasive Species Strategic Plan including:

  • To prevent new invaders from arriving and surviving in Ontario,
  • To slow, and where possible, reverse the spread of existing invasive species, and
  • To reduce the harmful impacts of existing invasive species
