Indigenous Reconciliation Fund

Dear Supporters,

Today, Wednesday, June 7, the Archdiocese of Edmonton announced it has contributed $3.2 million as part of the national Indigenous Reconciliation Fund (IRF) to support and advance healing and reconciliation initiatives with First Nations, Metis and Inuit Peoples. Here is the link to the page on the Archdiocesan website. This announcement was only possible because of your generosity and support for the reconciliation journey.

The Indigenous Reconciliation Fund will support projects that are determined locally, in collaboration with First Nations, Métis and Inuit partners. The IRF has established the following criteria for grant applications:

•    Healing and reconciliation for communities and families;

•    Culture and language revitalization;

•    Education and community building;

•    Dialogues for promoting indigenous spirituality and culture; and

•    Youth leadership.

The Indigenous Discernment Circle will identify projects within the area of the Archdiocese of Edmonton, review and approve applications and ensure transparency and good governance.

Thank you again for your generosity and we will continue to keep you apprised with respect to the projects approved.

Many thanks,

Marion Haggarty-France
