The Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF) announced a $3 million fund for developing, sharing, and applying knowledge and expertise to eliminate racism and all forms of racial discrimination in Canadian society.
The National Anti-Racism Fund will support community groups and non-profit organizations that aim to:
- design events and programming to combat systemic barriers to racialized Canadians and Indigenous people,
- promote education and research,
- build public awareness on systemic racism, and
- foster intercultural community cohesion.
"We believe that community initiatives are often the catalyst for societal change," said CRRF Executive Director Mohammed Hashim. "Giving much-needed funding to community organizations who often do the heavy lifting in anti-racism movements is an essential step in making Canada more racially equitable."
The National Anti-Racism Fund will have three streams of funding, each with different criteria and different allotted amounts.
All proposed National Anti-Racism Fund projects, events, or initiatives must be completed before December 31, 2023.

The CRRF will accept project-based applications between January 4 and January 21, 2022.
