Applications are being accepted through our online Stewardship Portal: www.sps.mnr.gov.on.ca. Please Note: new applicants must register for an account before being able to access the portal / submit an application. Applicants are advised to set up their account early in order to ensure suitable time before the submission deadline. Accounts can take up to 3 business days to activate.

To learn more, please see the attached Stewardship Portal Manual, and frequently asked questions document.
Applicants are encouraged to contact species experts, including their local MNRF Biologists/Ecologists, early in the planning process for advice on developing their project proposals. Local MNRF staff can also assist applicants in determining whether an authorization under the Endangered Species Act may be required.
