On August 10, 2021, the Government of Canada announced approximately $320 million in support for Indigenous-led, Survivor-centric, and culturally sensitive initiatives and investments to help Indigenous communities respond to and heal from the ongoing impacts of residential schools. This funding is intended for activities related to an Indian Residential School listed in the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement. These activities could include local research, engagement and knowledge gathering – memorialization or commemoration, bringing children home, or others.
To access funding, a PDF application is available to fill out.
