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.

Beginning in 2018, the Nation Rebuilding Program will provide funding support for activities facilitating Indigenous groups' own path to reconstituting their nations. Funding will be provided annually, for up to 5 years, through contribution agreements. A first call for proposals for 2018 to 2019 resulted in these selected projects, some of which are multi-year. The total amount of funding available for this program over 5 years is $100 million.

Who can apply?

Preference will be given to reconstituted Indigenous nations representing multiple Indigenous communities.


The deadline for the 2019 to 2020 call for proposals is April 15, 2019.
