FCC Expression Fund

The FCC Expression Fund supports Canada's official languages and honours those communities where both languages thrive. It's $50,000 in funding for projects that contribute to the vitality of official language minority communities and help residents express the cultural and linguistic diversity of their area. Some examples include refurbishment of community centres and auditoriums, cultural workshops and festivals, and learning materials or programming for public daycares and libraries. The fund awards between $2,000 and $10,000 to each successful applicant.
