Over the next two years, the federal government will disperse a new $10 million commemoration fund to develop various activities and events across Canada.
The fund was developed in memory of those who have been killed or gone missing over the past 30 years, and is a result of recommendations made by the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, that activities should be funded that honour the lives and legacies of Indigenous women, girls and LGBT people.
Initiatives could include events like Powwows, healing circles, lecture series, art workshops, community monuments and totem poles.
Organizations can find more information and submit an application to the Call for Proposals by visiting women.gc.ca.
The deadline to submit is March 28, 2019 at midnight.
On Thursday October 24th, our guaranteed payout on game #7 is $25,000
The Gord Downie and Chanie Wenjack Fund was founded in 2016, with the goal of helping Canada's reconciliation efforts with Indigenous people. Listen to the Podcast here
