Description

Women and Gender Equality Canada (WAGE) works to advance equality with respect to sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity or expression through the inclusion of people of all genders, including women, in Canada’s economic, social, and political life.

Eligibility

All applicants must be Indigenous not-for-profit organizations in Canada with experience working on GBV issues for Indigenous women, girls or 2SLGBTQQIA+ people. To show this, you must provide your mandate or describe your organization’s experience.

Examples of organizations led by Indigenous peoples include:

  • Indigenous not-for-profit organizations such as healing lodges, friendship centres, Indigenous women’s shelters, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ shelters
  • Indigenous not-for-profit women’s organizations
  • Two-Spirit not-for-profit organizations

The Department will give priority to projects submitted by:

  • Indigenous organizations led by Indigenous women and Indigenous 2SLGBTQQIA+ people
  • Indigenous local organizations that serve Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people
  • Larger Indigenous organizations that will partner with other Indigenous organizations to prevent violence

The Department will fund two types of projects:

Stream 1: Projects submitted by Incorporated or registered Indigenous not-for-profit organizations with experience working on GBV issues for Indigenous women, girls or 2SLGBTQQIA+ people.

For these projects, the maximum amounts (total per project) are:

  • Up to $400,000 in total for local organizations. Their activities cover at least one community, such as a town, city, or regional municipality. The Department will focus on these organizations.
  • Up to $500,000 in total for regional or provincial/territorial or interprovincial/interterritorial organizations. Their activities cover parts of a province or territory, an entire province or territory, or a few adjacent provinces or territories. For this call, organizations that cover one of Canada’s three largest municipalities would qualify as regional: Greater Toronto Area, Greater Montreal Area, and Greater Vancouver Area.
  • Up to $750,000 in total for national organizations. Their activities have the potential of impact across Canada.

There are often extra costs of living and travelling in northern or remote areas. So, you may apply for an extra 25% for activities in these areas (see question Activity location type for definitions).

For this call for proposals, an Indigenous organization is one that represents First Nations, Inuit, and/or Métis Peoples and is controlled by members of the population it serves.

A not-for-profit organization is a society, or association organized and operated solely for social welfare, civic improvement or recreation, or any other purpose except profit.

Stream 2: Projects submitted by informal Indigenous groups with a GBV prevention mandate or experience in addressing GBV issues for Indigenous women, girls, or 2SLGBTQQIA+ people that are not yet incorporated or registered.

This is an opportunity for these informal groups to apply for up to $25,000 in total. The condition for this funding is that they become incorporated or registered. After, organizations will be able to carry out other activities to increase their capacity, within the limit of $25,000. This funding stream is not eligible for the extra 25% for northern or remote areas.

Organizations can only apply once for this call for proposals.
