How to apply
Annually, the new Equity Grant Program consists of a total of three grants – worth $1,000 each – made available to UFCW Canada members and allies. Application deadline for the 2024 Equity Grant is September 30, 2024.
Prospective applicants will have the ability to apply under one of three different streams. These include Newcomer/Immigration Stream; Human Rights Stream and the Community Action Stream.
Applicants must supply a 250-word short description or a short video on what they will do if they are named a winner of the Equity Grant Program.
UFCW Canada reserves the right to select the awarding of a grant recipient earlier than September 30th if the requested initiative for which the grant is to support involves a project with a timeline envisioned before the September 30th deadline, and UFCW Canada selects this application. Best wishes to all applicants.
PLEASE NOTE – The Equity Grant Program is not a program which provides funding to support individual education endeavours.
