First Nations, Métis and Inuit Co-op Development Program – New Applications being accepted!

A new round of applications has now opened for the First Nations, Métis and Inuit Co-op Development Program. Applications must be sent to Co-operatives and Mutuals Canada by February 20th 2015. The amounts that can be granted vary between $5,000 and $50,000.

This program is designed to stimulate a start-up or an expansion of co-operative projects in First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities. Activities that would qualify for funding include (but not limit to) a pre-feasibility study, a feasibility study, a business plan as well as pre-start-up structuring activities such as exploration of innovative models or consultations between the community.

We encourage Provincial Associations and sectoral federations to present projects jointly with Aboriginal organization partners.

This program is funded by the

Thank you and Happy New Year!
