Application Open. Apply by February 11, 2019.
Laidlaw’s Indigenous Youth and Communities Futures Fund is for Indigenous youth-led groups to develop and lead projects where they are immersed in their lands, languages, and cultures; participate in everyday acts of resurgence, reclamation and wellbeing; build relationships within and across Indigenous communities; and learn about and define for themselves what reconciliation means.
Eligibility: This call is open to Indigenous youth-led groups that are based in traditional territories spanning Ontario. A youth-led group generally consists of young people between the ages of 14 to 29. However, we also welcome groups with younger members or adult allies, community helpers, Elders, and Knowledge Keepers playing supportive roles as long as young people, who self identify as Indigenous Peoples, come up with the project idea and lead the project.
You can apply for up to $30,000 for small-scale projects that can last between 6 to 12 months.
