Canada Post Community Foundation Grants.
Over the past 8 years, the Community Foundation has given over $8 million to more than 780 projects in an effort to positively impact our communities.
Canada Post gives grants to charitable organizations, non-profits, schools, libraries and communities to support children and youth (up to age 21) initiatives.
Community-based Support Projects provide grants up to $25,000.
Projects must involve capacity-building or the creation or expansion of services, rather than the maintenance of existing services.
Expansion may include augmentation of a service, addition of a service or inclusion of a new geographic territory.
Capacity-building activities could also include hiring and/or training staff; or covering costs directly related to the delivery of a program, such as mileage, facilities rental, communications activities; or the purchase, construction or addition of new equipment or facilities.
Grants to unregistered organizations will not exceed $5,000 each.
The Canada Post Community Foundation has $1.18 million available to grant in the 2020 grant cycle.

The Métis Cultural Kinnections Youth Forum is an initiative of Métis Youth British Columbia (MYBC) that aims to provide an opportunity to Métis youth ages 15-19, from across the province who are living in care or in an out-of-care arrangement to learn about their culture and connect with the land. The forum will provide a culturally safe and supportive environment for the youth where they can connect with respected Métis Elders, leaders, community members, and other Métis youth. Through these relationships, youth will connect with their culture and their people. There will also be many opportunities to be out on the land and participate in outdoor activities such as archery and hiking.
Who is eligible to attend?
MNBC Youth Citizens and self-identified Métis Youth living in the province of BC, who are in the Continuing Custody (CCO) of the Director or on a Youth Agreement (YAG). Métis Youth do not need a MNBC citizenship card to attend the forum.
