The Government of Alberta is committed to reconciliation with Indigenous communities, peoples, and organizations by supporting initiatives that enhance local economic development and Indigenous culture.

The Indigenous Reconciliation Initiative provides funding up to $100,000 for cultural or economic projects through two streams.

The Indigenous Reconciliation Initiative is accepting applications.


Cultural Stream

Funds Indigenous-led initiatives that enhance, protect, or revitalize Indigenous languages, heritage, culture and arts.

Economic Stream

Funds Indigenous-led capacity and opportunity development projects that improve economic outcomes for communities.


Staff are available to discuss economic and cultural development opportunities with Indigenous community representatives.
