Description:
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
help foster intercultural or interfaith understanding
be open to and intended for the general public
