How Will Your Community Benefit from the Federal Funding Infusion?

With a renewed focus on community infrastructure projects in Indigenous communities, the Federal Government’s proposed 2022 budget includes a multi-billion-dollar investment into Indigenous services, reinforcing its commitment to a nation-to-nation relationship with Indigenous peoples.

Join The Canadian Institute’s inaugural Forum on First Nations Housing & Infrastructure Atlantic, on October 19 in Halifax to hear how we will unpack the federal budget’s funding allocation and discover the latest on funding and financing opportunities for both housing and infrastructure needs.
