New Funding to Support Reconciliation

The Urban Communities Partnering for Reconciliation pilot program is now accepting applications from local governments and eligible Indigenous societies.  The application deadline is May 24, 2019.

The UCPR pilot program is based on the recognition that relationships play an important part in reconciliation and that collaboration between Indigenous peoples, including Métis communities, and the public helps strengthen these relationships.

The funding will support reconciliation activities that support opportunities for dialogue and that explore, in safe spaces, learning and relationship building that considers the community’s capacity, history and unique identities.

The Program & Application Guide and Application Form are available on UBCM’s website.  For more information, contact Danyta Welch at 250 356-5193 or
