Program to Enhance Rail Safety Engagement

Note: The PERSE is not accepting any applications for funding at this time.

Transport Canada's Program to Enhance Rail Safety Engagement provides funding to increase capacity for Indigenous and local communities, organizations, and entities to engage with Transport Canada regarding the rail transportation system.

This program helps Indigenous and local communities participate in developing and improving Canada's rail transportation system through consulting, engaging, collaborating, participating, researching, or gathering community views.

NOTE: You can apply for funding to support short-term participation in event-driven engagement activities like meetings or discussion forums through our Community Participation Funding Program – Rail Safety Component.
