Indigenous Healing and Wellness Grants
In 2014, Vancouver City Council designated Vancouver as a “City of Reconciliation”. In 2015, staff developed the City of Reconciliation overarching vision:
As a City of Reconciliation, the City of Vancouver will form a sustained relationship of mutual respect and understanding with local First Nations and the Urban Aboriginal community, including key agencies, to incorporate a First Nations and Urban Aboriginal perspective into the work undertaken and decisions made by the City of Vancouver and, ultimately, to provide services that benefit members of these communities.
The Indigenous Healing and Wellness Grants program supports projects that provide traditional, spiritual, and cultural healing and wellness activities in Vancouver's urban Indigenous community.
