Since 1999, the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Indigenous Services Canada have provided funding for the C2C program. In this time, more than 650 C2C Forums have been held in communities across the province.
With the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada releasing its Executive Summary of findings and 94 Calls to Action in 2015, and BC and Canada both adopting the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), the C2C program has taken on ever greater importance as First Nations and local governments use the grant to focus their increased efforts for reconciliation.
New in 2021/22 - The C2C program can contribute a maximum of 100% of the cost of eligible activities – to a maximum of $5,000.00.
For all funded projects, it is expected that in-person activities, meetings or events meet physical distancing and other public health guidance in relation to COVID-19. Extensions to final report deadlines are available for any approved C2C project impacted by COVID-19.
