Regional Diversity Grants

Regional Diversity Grants

CHF Canada will fund innovative ideas and projects that promote diversity in your co-op community!  This is your opportunity to develop a project for your co-op or federation, while at the same time encouraging and inspiring diversity initiatives across Canada!

Why a Diversity Grant?

CHF Canada supports diversity projects in co-operative communities. We want to help your co-op to promote and celebrate diversity. And we want to spread the word about these initiatives to other co-ops.

Who can apply?

Any CHF Canada member co-op or federation.

  • gender
  • education
  • ability

How much can you ask for?
