The province has doubled the funding available for this year’s Francophone Community Grants program.
$2 million will be available to support community organizations, social enterprises and businesses that contribute significantly to the vitality of Ontario’s Francophone community.
“This year, we have doubled the funding for this meaningful program in order to support more initiatives and organizations that serve the French-speaking community,” said Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Francophone Affairs. “I encourage everyone to submit projects that will strengthen Ontario’s Francophonie.”
This year’s total annual allocation of $2 million will help support more projects that will:
- strengthen the capacity of organizations and/or businesses to provide products and services to Francophones in the province;
- promote the recruitment and/or training of bilingual francophone staff; and,
- provide opportunities to celebrate and foster understanding of Ontario’s Francophonie.
Applications open Thursday, May 27, 2021 and must be submitted through the Transfer Payment Ontario portal.
