Funding Opportunity: Department of Canadian Heritage

Funding for Celebrate Canada celebrations will provide Canadians the opportunity to:
  • enable Canadians to appreciate Canada's cultural, ethnic, linguistic and geographic diversity.
  • create opportunities for Canadians to participate in celebrations that create a sense of pride and belonging to Canada.
The 2012 application process for Celebrate Canada celebrations funding is now launched.

Canadian Heritage provides financial support for activities organized during the Celebrate Canada period, from June 21st to July 1st. These activities celebrate National Aboriginal Day, on June 21st, Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day on June 24th, Canadian Multiculturalism Day on June 27th and Canada Day on July 1st.  

In 2012, Canada will commemorate the 60th anniversary of the reign of Her Majesty as Queen of Canada. To mark her Diamond Jubilee, Canadians will celebrate the Queen's reign, honour her service and dedication to this country, and showcase Canadian achievements of the last 60 years. In 2012, we will also mark the 200th Anniversary of the War of 1812, an important milestone in Canadian history.

In assessing proposals, the Department will give priority to applications that thematically integrate one or both of the above anniversaries into proposed activities. 
Application deadline: January 16, 2012
