CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

The new urban Aboriginal Strategy (USA) is a strategic framework implemented by the Department of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) to address urban Aboriginal issues in the multijurisdictional and multi-stakeholder environment of Canada’s urban centres.

The urban Aboriginal Strategy plays a unique role as a facilitator between government and stakeholders, able to coordinate efforts in order to respond to the needs of Indigenous Peoples in seeking to participate in the economy. The strategy is o fund and facilities activities that lead partners to work together to implement identified priorities and approaches to increasing urban Aboriginal participation in the economy.

The National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC) receives funding through the INAC for the Community Capacity Support Program. Each Provincial/Territorial Friendship Centre Association administers the CCS program. PTA’s are regional affiliates of the NAFC.

Objective

The Community Capacity Support program (CCS) provides core-like funding to Friendship Centres and other urban Aboriginal Organizations so they can have a stable base from which to deliver programs and services that increase urban Aboriginal participation in the economy. This stable base is also to be used to attract additional investment by being a platform from which other government programs, from all levels of government, can be delivered to the urban aboriginal community.

The objective for Community Capacity Support is to increase the participation of urban Aboriginal Individuals, families and communities in the economy. Participation in the economy means that Aboriginal peoples have the skills, knowledge and training to secure, maintain and excel in a strong Canadian economy. It is generally accepted that increased participation in the economy is achieved by individuals having suitable education, a skill set, self-advocacy skills and can access and utilize services/supports that reduce small challenges that create barriers, such as transportation and childcare.
