Launch of new tri-agency Indigenous Research Capacity and Reconciliation—Connection Grants

The new tri-agency Indigenous Research Capacity and Reconciliation—Connection Grants invites proposals from applicants affiliated with First Nations, Métis and Inuit not-for-profit organizations, as well as with other not-for-profit organizations or Canadian postsecondary institutions in any discipline.

The initiative will support short-term targeted interdisciplinary events, outreach activities and position papers to help guide new ways of engaging in research by and with First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities. This will include holistic, interdisciplinary and distinctions-based approaches that are transformative and contribute to reconciliation.

These Connection Grants are valued at up to $50,000 for six months, with the possibility of a six-month extension. The leadership and governance of all proposed projects must involve the participation of First Nations, Métis or Inuit communities.


The deadline for proposals is September 6, 2018, with results to be announced in October 2018.
