Professional Development Grants

Professional Development Grants help organizations access training and mentorship opportunities.

Note: Some of the opportunities formerly under Professional Development Grants have now moved to our Organizational Development Grants program.


  • Professional Development Grants are for staff of registered charities that primarily benefit the citizens of Winnipeg.
  • Your organization must have a registered charitable number from Canada Revenue Agency to apply for a Professional Development Grant. (This number is required to access the online application form.)
  • You may apply for one Professional Development Grant per calendar year. Organizations may apply for a Community Grant, or any special program grant, in the same year, but applications must be for different projects.
