Aboriginal projects fund
Our Aboriginal Projects Fund was initially established as a pilot grants program in 2002 on the recommendation of our Aboriginal Strategic Committee. Thanks to the success of the pilot, we have retained this valuable program.
Applications are open year-round. Assessments are made by the Aboriginal Strategic Committee. An applicant can apply for funding for more than one project in a funding round throughout the year.
A total of $35,000 is available, with up to $3,000 maximum per application and no minimum amount.
