Roots & Shoot for Aboriginal Youth Project Development Grants

Roots & Shoot for Aboriginal Youth Project

Development Grants

The Roots & Shoots team has witnessed the dedication and teamwork of groups who give back to their communities and has recently decided to assist groups in their achieving their objectives.

Roots & Shoots is pleased to announce that we will be offering small grants of up to $2000 for projects to be developed by First Nations, Inuit and Métis groups/communities who are part of the Roots & Shoots for Aboriginal Youth Program.

Made possible with the generous support of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada, grants will be provided to groups who demonstrate an existing commitment to Roots & Shoots for Aboriginal Youth and express a clear plan for executing community action projects.

Criteria for consideration:

  • You are an existing Roots & Shoots member (If you are not a member please visit www.RootsandShoots.ca to join). Please note: applications will not be considered unless you are a member group.

  • You belong to a First Nations, Inuit or Métis group or organization (grants will not be provided to individuals).

  • Your projects will have a positive impact on a community issue related to people, animals or the environment. Preference will be given to projects that address more than one area of interest.

  • You have submitted a fully completed application form.

Deadline for submission:

Wednesday, March 23rd by 5 pm (Eastern Standard Time)


All grant recipients will be expected to submit a final report within 6 months and 10% of the grant will be withheld until the final report is received.
