The Jubilee Fund is a project of Mennonite Central Committee Canada and Mennonite Church Canada that attempts to address in a small way the imbalance of wealth and power between people of Indigenous (First Nations, Metis, Inuit) descent and Canada’s settler population.
Jubilee Fund issues grants to grass roots or non-profit Indigenous organizations, groups and/or communities in Canada for work on projects related to land.
Projects considered for funding include, but are not limited to:
• initiatives involved in reconnecting people to their traditional land base
• protection and reclamation of sacred sites and traditional or treaty land
• sustainable land use
• environmental justice initiatives
