Call to Action # 68

We call upon the federal government, in collaboration with Aboriginal peoples, and the Canadian Museums Association to mark the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation in 2017 by establishing a dedicated national funding program for commemoration projects on the theme of reconciliation.

Why “Complete”?

The government did not establish dedicated funding for Indigenous groups but allocated a percentage of over-all spending to indigenous projects that consisted of:

  • Signature Projects: $3,603,300 for 5 projects out of 38 (13% of total) including 2 dedicated to Reconciliation
  • Community Projects: $28.6M for 248 projects out of 636 (39% of total)

As noted on the government website.“The Canada 150 fund of $200M is now closed”. (July 15, 2018)
