Toronto – August 8, 2023 – The UFCW Canada Equity Grant Program aims to support newcomer programs, human rights initiatives, and community action projects. Applications are still open until the end of September.
The UFCW Canada Equity Grant Program program builds on UFCW Canada’s longstanding mandate to support the work of both UFCW members and the communities they serve. Annually, the Equity Grant Program will consist of a total of three grants – worth $1,000 each – made available to UFCW Canada members and allies.
Equity Grants are open to UFCW members and community justice activists outside of UFCW who are currently engaged in or looking to engage in a social justice initiative. Past winners include McMaster Hope in Hamilton, Pamir Canadian Multiculturalism Council in Calgary, and Rivercity Neurocast in Winnipeg.
The application process takes approximately 5-10 minutes to complete and the platform is accessible. Apply here!
