Municipalities are eligible to apply under the “Building Community Capacity” and “System Improvement” streams
Alberta Labour and Immigration is now accepting applications for 2021 - 2022 project funding under the Settlement, Integration and Language Project grant
. The grant program is intended to support projects that contribute to Alberta’s economic recovery by strengthening a diverse and inclusive workforce and supporting communities to attract, welcome, and retain newcomers.
The program includes three separate streams. Municipalities are eligible to apply for funding under the following streams:
- Building Community Capacity
- This stream will fund initiatives to help communities develop their capacity and readiness to attract, welcome, and retain newcomers.
- System Improvement
- This stream will fund projects and initiatives that innovatively address gaps and improve efficiencies in the immigration system to support economic recovery needs.
More information on both streams is available in the application guidance document
