Nation Rebuilding Program

About the program:

The Government of Canada has committed to a forward-looking and transformative agenda to renew relationships with Indigenous Peoples. Indigenous groups are seeking to rebuild their nations in a manner that responds to their priorities and the unique needs of their communities. This funding has been made available for five years starting in 2018-19, to support activities that would facilitate their own path to reconstituting their nations. This new program will support the rebuilding efforts of Indigenous nations through the provision of contribution funding aimed at developing capacity.
