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.

Through Budget 2018, funding has been made available for 5 years starting in fiscal year 2018 to 2019, to support activities that would facilitate Indigenous communities' own path to reconstituting their nations. Funding is provided annually, for up to 5 years, through contribution agreements. 2018 and 2019 calls for proposals resulted in the selected projects below, some of which are multi-year. The total amount of funding available for this program is $100 million over 5 years, amounting to $20 million per fiscal year to distribute across the country.


The deadline for the 2022 to 2023 call for proposals was December 17, 2021.
