About the program

The program also helps Inuit share their cultural heritage with other Canadians, promoting cross-cultural awareness between Inuit and non-Inuit communities.

Eight to ten grants, of a maximum $5,000 per recipient, are awarded each year.

Who can apply?

Inuit individuals ordinarily resident in Nunatsiavut (Labrador), Nunavik (Quebec), Nunavut, or the Inuvialuit Settlement Region in the Northwest Territories, as well as community-based Inuit cultural education centres.
