The Fund challenges Indigenous and non-Indigenous Manitobans to engage in new and innovative approaches to reconciliation. Proposals submitted to the Indigenous and Northern Initiatives Fund will contribute to the following outcomes:
- Improve relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Manitoba.
- Improve the quality of life for Indigenous peoples, particularly with respect to economic development, job creation and educational initiatives.
- Support activities that align with the Path to Reconciliation Act, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action and/or the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
- Show clear, concrete and positive project benefits that align with the priorities of government as expressed in the provincial Speech from the Throne, ministerial mandate letters, the 100-Day Action Plan, and/or other provincial strategies and priorities.
Only single-year projects will be considered. The application deadline is Feb. 7.
