The selected projects supported nation rebuilding efforts contributing to the rebuilding of Indigenous nations. As well as restoration of historic relationships and ties between Indigenous communities to increase capacity at the larger nation level. This was accomplished through various activities such as:
consultation, engagement and information sharing for communities to share ideas and collaborate on issues, priorities and approaches
self-government learning and skills development
developing or strengthening nation level self-determination structures and processes to take on greater sectoral responsibilities that will facilitate self-determination and eventual self-governance
developing a common vision, plans and strategies
For various reasons, some funding applicants were unable to expend the full amount of funding provided in the previous fiscal year(s) and have received approval to make use of unspent funds to support 2022-23 activities, reducing or replacing the need for additional new funding. The amounts below include new funding for 2022-23 only, and do not include funds brought forward from previous years of approximately $5 million.
