Ontario’s Multicultural Community Capacity Grants

We’re excited about a new funding program announced by the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration. The Multicultural Community Capacity Grant Program focuses on multicultural communities in Ontario – supporting their events and sharing their stories. Small grants of up to $8,000 can get you started on an event series, digitization project, or collaboration with new partners.

We encourage our member organizations to apply for funding under this program. Lots of communities in Ontario are experiencing influxes of newcomers and refugees, and the VITA digital toolkit offers you tools to collect and share their stories: the user contribution module, virtual exhibits, testimonials, and by starting conversations through the Mystery setting on items.

The funding is available to incorporated and non-incorporated not-for-profits, so if this doesn’t apply to you, you can still partner with community groups who are eligible.

Here are a few project ideas:

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team if you have an idea for a project involving VITA and OurDigitalWorld’s other tools and collections. We’re happy to offer estimates and help you describe the potential of our tools.
