These Connection Grants are valued at up to $50,000 for six months, with the possibility of a six-month extension. The leadership and governance of all proposed projects must involve the participation of First Nations, Métis or Inuit communities. Applications are due September 6, 2018 (8:00 p.m. Eastern).
