Description

The Michaëlle Jean Foundation is a Canadian non-profit organization that encourages communities to use art and creativity to stimulate and enhance citizen participation and dialogue with a particular emphasis on youth.

The objectives of the Foundation are, among others, to: raise awareness, and leverage the creative power, of the arts to generate a more socially harmonious, civically engaged and innovative Canada; enhance collaborative linkages and networks connecting the arts and creative communities with other sectors of society; promote local and national initiatives to create a new discourse and branding around Canadian culture that better communicate the value of the arts and creativity to the broader public; and contribute to empowering youth and emerging artists in their efforts to use art as a tool to address challenges facing their neighbourhoods and communities.

To achieve these ends, the Foundation will provide programming in the areas of creative communities, youth action and democracy. The programming will, thus, bring together support for community initiatives, discussion forums and the promotion of citizen participation through social media.

Program 2.3: Official Languages, Sub-Program 2.3.1: Development of Official-Language Communities Program

Name of recipient

Endowment Fund - Canadian Institute for Research on Linguistic Minorities

Start date

March 20, 2002

End date

Perpetual

Description

Thanks to an endowment of $10 million funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Canadian Institute for Research on Linguistic Minorities (CIRLM) was created in March 2002 for the purpose of becoming a national centre of expertise to better understand the challenges that official language minority communities face and the trends in their environment. Although it is housed at the Université de Moncton, the Institute has a national mission. It carries out activities related to official language minority communities through revenues generated by the Endowment Fund and other revenues.

The goal of the Institute is to increase research on issues related to official-language minority communities. More and improved research will ensure that leaders of minority-language communities and officials responsible for developing public policy will have a better understanding of the issues that affect the development of Canada’s French- and English-speaking minority communities.

Ukrainian Canadian Foundation of Taras Shevchenko

Start date

2008-09: one-time conditional grant

End date

Funding agreement governing endowment ends in May 2023

Description

Recognizing the historical significance of First World War internment of “enemy aliens,” the Government of Canada provided a conditional grant of $10 million under the Community Historical Recognition Program to the Ukrainian Canadian Foundation of Taras Shevchenko for the establishment and management of an endowment fund known as the Canadian First World War Internment Recognition Fund. (This funding was provided on a one-time basis when the Community Historical Recognition Program was managed by the Department of Canadian Heritage.) The affected communities include Ukrainians, Alevi Kurds, Armenians, Bulgarians, Croatians, Czechs, Germans, Hungarians, Italians, Jews, Ottoman Turks, Polish, Romanians, Russians, Serbians, Slovaks, Slovenes, among others of which most were Ukrainians and most were civilians. Through calls for proposals managed by the Foundation, applicants apply for financial support for activities that commemorate, acknowledge and educate Canadians about the experiences of communities affected by internment and the subsequent contributions of these communities to shaping Canada. The funding agreement will remain in effect for 15 years.

Name of recipient

Global Centre for Pluralism (GCP)

Start date

2006-07: One-time conditional grant

End date

Perpetual

Description

The Global Centre for Pluralism is a not-for-profit organization founded by His Highness the Aga Khan in partnership with the Government of Canada to address a global gap in institutions that advocate pluralism as a foundation for effective governance, peace and human development at the international level. The GCP pursues its mandate through four core functions:

  • supporting international policy dialogue about pluralism, a core human value and practice;
  • supporting academic and professional development;
  • deepening global understanding of pluralism through research and learning; and
  • building the capacity of governments, civil society organizations, donors and other potential champions to promote pluralism in their own societies, in part by providing global access to the Canadian experience.

These activities will target the developed and the developing world, offering a platform from which existing organizations and experts on pluralism in Canada and other parts of the world can reach and influence an international audience.
