Walking Together Grants

Walking Together Grants support youth-led Truth and Reconciliation projects.

  • Supported by a school or registered charity.
  • Organizations must have a registered charitable number from Canada Revenue Agency to apply for a Walking Together grant.
  • Nonprofits can apply by partnering with a registered charity. The registered charity must play an active role in the grant.
