On behalf of the Federal Anti-Racism Secretariat, I would like to share the launch of a Call for Proposals (CFP) for the Canada Service Corps (CSC). The CSC promotes civic engagement among young people (ages 15 to 30) through access to meaningful volunteer service opportunities that help them gain essential life skills and experience.
The objective of this CFP is to continue to scale-up the CSC and strengthen diversity. It identifies the engagement of Indigenous and historically marginalized youth as a key program focus. This goal is aligned with the Government of Canada’s commitment to youth programming and the pledge to equity, diversity and inclusion.
A total of up to $174,725,000 is being invested in the CSC in 2022-23 and 2023-24, including through this CFP. Organizations can apply between February 8, 2022, to March 22, 2022, at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), to four program streams:
- Service Placements National Stream
- Service Placements Regional Stream
- Micro-grants Stream
- Micro-grants Diversity Stream
Grateful if you can share this CFP with your networks.
