Inter-Action: Multiculturalism Grants and Contributions Funding

Inter-Action, Canada’s Multiculturalism Grants and Contribution Program, is administered by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC).

The Program supports CIC’s mandate and the Canadian Multiculturalism Act by assisting the socio-economic integration of individuals and communities and their contributions to building an integrated and socially cohesive society.

There are two Inter-Action funding streams: Projects and Events.

Inter-Action Events

The Inter-Action Events stream provides funding to community based events that foster one or more of the following:

  • Intercultural/interfaith understanding
  • Civic memory and pride
  • Respect for core democratic values

The primary intention is to create concrete opportunities for interaction among cultural and faith communities. Events should be intended for and open to all Canadians.

For details on how to apply see:

Completed applications must be sent both by regular mail and electronically to the regional office where the event would be held. Applications are accepted year round.

Inter-Action Projects

The Inter-Action Projects stream provides funding for long-term, multi-year community development and engagement projects, with the aim of fostering an integrated, socially-cohesive society.
