The new Indigenous Truth and Reconciliation Signature Grant

This year, the Foundation has introduced a new annual Indigenous Truth and Reconciliation Signature Grant, valued at $50,000.

The Signature Grant will support educational initiatives for children and youth that increase the understanding of Indigenous culture and foster meaningful conversations in the spirit of Reconciliation. Such initiatives can include programs that facilitate access to Indigenous language resources; that build capacity for intercultural understanding, empathy and mutual respect; or that develop best practices on teaching curriculum related to residential schools and Indigenous history.

The Foundation created this Signature Grant to support the goals, recommendations and calls to action outlined in the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.

Local and regional groups that represent First Nation, Métis, Inuit or Urban Indigenous peoples and that offer programs supporting these communities are invited to apply.
