** Types of Projects – proposed projects must relate to economic development or community enhancement and/or must address an identified need or demand within the Skeena Queen Charlotte Regional District region. Eligible activities are extremely broad and flexible and can range from arts initiatives, heritage conservation, service provision, capacity building, marketing campaigns, and more.

** Eligibility – non-profits, registered charitable organizations, cooperative associations, arts organizations, and First Nations groups are all eligible to receive assistance. Individuals are ineligible except for those in search of funding through the Canada or B.C. Arts Councils. Operational or core funding is not eligible.

For more information, or to inquire about grant researching, writing or consulting support – Please email or call Blair Mirau at 250-627-0913 or
