  • Community Safety >> Crime Prevention
  • Community Safety >> Justice
Funding Federal
Description:
The Aboriginal Community Safety Planning Initiative (ACSPI) works to prevent incidents of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG), provides a means to enhance accessibility to Restorative Justice programming and responds to the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).

Support for Indigenous community-led planning and implementation of solutions
The ACSPI supports Indigenous communities in the development of Community Safety Plans (CSPs) which are specific to their unique circumstances. These plans identify community strengths, assets and safety and wellness goals in order for all community members to see themselves involved on a path leading toward a healthier, safer home and community life.

In this uniquely grass-roots approach, Public Safety Canada officials work with communities and continue to support them through the many stages of CSP engagement, development and implementation. However, before the process starts, it is important that the community leaders fully support the concept and demonstrate commitment. Public Safety Canada officials provide information and are available to answer questions but will not actually start the process without having been invited, and having received written endorsement from the community leadership first.

In recognition of the United Nations International Decade for People of African Descent, the Multiculturalism and Anti-Racism Program (MARP) will include a new priority in its Events component: celebrations and events that recognize the history, culture, accomplishments, contributions and future of Black Canadians and their communities.

Also, in alignment with the ongoing efforts to combat systemic racism and promote inclusivity, a new priority on combatting anti-Asian racism has been established for the Events component. This priority will specifically focus on anti-Asian racism initiatives that aim to raise awareness, foster understanding, and honour the contributions of Asian Canadians to our diverse society. The objective is to promote inclusion and unity, while empowering communities to stand against racism in all its forms.

In addition, $3 million has been set aside for another new priority, Building Community Resilience. This call to action seeks to empower communities by facilitating events and initiatives that strengthen connections, foster unity, build resilience, and establish a national network of best practices. The ultimate objective is to inspire and catalyze local grassroots initiatives that build bridges and unite Canadians.

To be eligible for funding your event must meet all of the following requirements:

establish concrete opportunities for positive interaction among cultural, religious or ethnocultural communities
demonstrate involvement of more than one single cultural, religious or ethnocultural community or target a single cultural community and provide opportunities to engage with and foster pride in the community’s history, culture and/or identity, such as heritage months recognized by Parliament

These activities provide First Nations, Inuit and ISC-employed healthcare staff the space required to safely and efficiently deliver health care programs and services in First Nations and Inuit communities.

The types of health infrastructure supported under this program include health services buildings, addictions treatment centres, Aboriginal Head Start on Reserve spaces and residences for healthcare professionals. The nature of the health infrastructure required by a community is assessed based on a number of factors:

the types of health programs and services being delivered in the community
the number and type of health professionals providing such services
population size
the proximity of the community to provincial, territorial or other community health services
The majority of health facilities funded through the program are First Nations health facilities serving First Nations individuals and families living on or near reserves.

The program supports First Nations communities in assuming greater control over their health facilities planning, for example, through the use of community health plans, including operational plans to support health services delivery. The long-term goal of the program is to transfer control over the planning, design and delivery of health infrastructure programs and services to Indigenous organizations and institutions.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, Canada

A Free Book Gifting Program

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library of Canada is a free book gifting program devoted to inspiring a love of reading in the hearts of children everywhere. Each month, enrolled children receive a high quality, age appropriate book in the mail, free of charge. Children receive books from birth to age five.

From a Toronto stage in November of 2006, Dolly Parton gleefully announced the Canadian expansion of her Imagination Library. It was the first international push for the organization. The development was thanks, in part, to an early agreement with the Canadian-based organization, Invest in Kids which proved to be just the beginning. Program coverage in Canada spans across Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Northwest Territories, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Yukon Territories.

Each year, more books featuring Canadian authors and illustrators are introduced into the program. Additionally, titles with themes and subjects that appeal to the Canadian readers are added.

Description:
Community services, such as policing, are an important part of supporting community safety and well-being. However, to proactively support community protection and well-being, a holistic approach must also include complementary, Indigenous-led initiatives which offer a broad spectrum of community support.

The Pathways to Safe Indigenous Communities Initiative will provide $103.8 million over 5 years to assist First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities and partners, both on and off-reserve, to implement Indigenous-designed projects to improve community safety and well-being.

This initiative will support projects which:

recognize the importance of traditional knowledge and practices to contributing to greater community safety and well-being
recognize holistic models of community safety and well-being
address existing and emerging needs relating to the safety and well-being of Indigenous women and girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people
The Pathways to Safe Indigenous Communities Initiative will not support enforcement activities or fund policing bodies or organizations.

You can find a list of eligible activities and the terms and conditions of the initiative at:

Description:
The Professional Arts Festivals and Performing Arts Series Presenters sub-component of the Canada Arts Presentation Fund (CAPF) supports existing professional arts festivals and performing arts series presenters to offer activities that connect artists with Canadians in their communities. This is primarily achieved through performances, as well as through audience development and outreach initiatives such as pre- or post-show panel discussions, public lectures and workshops, residencies, demonstrations, public rehearsals, and other forms of community engagement activities.

Through the CAPF, Canadians have access to a variety of professional artistic experiences in their communities. Each year, we support approximately 600 professional arts festivals and performing arts series, as well as other activities related to art presentation, in more than 250 cities or communities across Canada.

Ultimately, the long-term results of the program allows Canadians to value and engage with professional artistic experiences.

The CAPF has two main components – Programming and Development. The CAPF Programming component has two sub-components: Professional Arts Festivals and Performing Arts Series Presenters; and Presenter Support Organizations.
