Francophone Community Grants Program

Description

Background

In the 2017 Budget, the Ontario government approved the creation of the Francophone Community Grants Program (FCGP), committing $1.0 million annually for the period 2017-18 to 2019-20 to support the implementation of cultural and community activities benefitting the Franco-Ontarian community.

Mission and Goal

The FCGP is a competitive, application-based program to support cultural and community activities for the Franco-Ontarian community. It seeks to encourage greater social involvement, learning, innovation and community engagement for Francophones across the province, including at the local community, regional, and provincial levels.

FCGP Objective

The program aims to support Projects in Ontario that:

1. Facilitate social integration, networking and volunteerism within francophone communities;

2. Reduce barriers and increase support for vulnerable groups within Francophone communities;

3. Provide opportunities to celebrate and promote an understanding of Ontario’s Francophonie;

4. Build the capacity of francophone organizations; and

5. Promote collaboration between service providers to better serve francophone communities.

Deadline

The application period for 2017-18 and 2018-19 is now closed. The application period for 2019-20 will open in September 2018.
