The Indigenous Peoples Resilience Fund (IPRF), hosted by Community Foundations of Canada, is an Indigenous-led effort to respond to urgent community needs while taking a long-term view on building community resilience.

The Fund started receiving applications in 2020 and applications are ongoing.

Any Indigenous-led organization working to foster resilience in Inuit, Metis and First Nations communities anywhere in Canada can apply for resiliency support ranging from $5,000 to $30,000.

For examples of eligible projects, how to apply and more, view the Applicant Guide. Among the examples of eligible projects is those responding to “Sustainable access to food and strengthened local food systems.”

The Fund is governed by an Indigenous Advisory Council that approves all governance, resilience fund projects, communications and fundraising strategies and recommendations related to the work of fulfilling the purpose of the IPRF.

Community Foundations of Canada is supporting this work as a host partner, and the Fund is made possible thanks to the contributions of several foundations and funders.
