Language Gathering and Sharing grants are now available through the Pathways to Language Vitality Program.
Language Gathering and Sharing grants provide funding so communities can connect and share language successes, tools and ideas. This stream provides funding for language gatherings and community-to-community mentorships. Funds for language gatherings cover travel and meeting costs so communities that share the same language can work together. Funding for community-to-community mentorships allow groups to visit with communities from other languages to learn from successful language revitalization initiatives. Language Gathering and Sharing grants are funded by First Peoples’ Cultural Foundation and the Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation.
We are here to ensure that the funding application process is as easy as possible and offer a convenient online portal so applicants can more easily apply for programs and submit reports. For additional information please visit the Funding Process page.
