Brief Overview

The Indigenous Artist Microgrant provides one-time funding to First Nation, Metis and Inuit individual artists and artist collectives living and working in the Treaty 7 region working on the preservation, maintenance and revival of Indigenous culture, traditions or forms. The program supports projects related to the crafting and creation of regalia and projects related to traditional methods and forms, including mentorship, training and knowledge sharing. 

The application process, requirements and funding decision will be developed through conversation between program staff, the Indigenous Advisory and applicants and does not take place on our online granting platform.
