Indigenous Cultural Initiatives Program

The Indigenous Cultural Initiatives Program provides non-profit organizations, Indigenous service providers, with project grants towards activities that foster the transmission of indigenous cultural knowledge, engage youth in traditional practices or teachings and promote understanding, awareness, appreciation and preservation of Indigenous culture, language and heritage. This program offers two components:

  • Arts Education – supports initiatives providing instruction or mentorship in traditional or contemporary arts education; and
  • Traditional Dance – supports the cultural component of traditional annual arts presentations or powwow celebrations.

Priority will be given to mentor-based initiatives and activities that demonstrate the highest degree of community interaction, cultural impact and youth participation.
