Multiculturalism grants build intercultural trust and understanding among British Columbians
The B.C. Multiculturalism Grants program helps organizations work to improve cultural interactions, reduce barriers and remove discrimination to create a more inclusive province.
The program hosts two project streams focused on building intercultural trust and understanding, and reducing the barriers that limit full participation in society:
- Intercultural Interaction Stream: For projects that build cross-cultural and intercultural interaction, trust and understanding between people of different ethno-cultural, racial, religious and other backgrounds. These projects can cover a range of activities, programs, events and approaches.
- Anti-Racism and Systems Change Stream: For projects that challenge racism, hate and/or reduce systemic or institutional barriers for under-represented, racialized and/or other minority groups, especially those that use a collaborative community approach.
Applications are now closed for the 2018-2019 BC Multiculturalism Grants. All applicants will be sent notifications indicating the results of their application by March 31, 2019.
