One of the most important ways that the Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF) fights racism in Canada is through our National Anti-Racism Fund (NARF). Over the past two years, we have contributed over $5 million to support the powerful work of almost 300 organizations across Canada.

The CRRF works to strengthen the social fabric of our society by supporting, enabling and convening community groups and organizations through our grants, services and network of public, research and community partners. NARF supports our commitments to build a national framework for the fight against racism in Canadian society by strengthening the capacity of racialized communities, religious minority groups and Indigenous people to carry out their own work to combat racism and create opportunities for meaningful dialogue, learning and sharing with the broader public.

NARF provides two types of grant funding: 1) Projects and 2) Events and Youth Initiatives. Each funding stream has different criteria and different amounts of available funding. Over the next two years, NARF will provide $6 million in grant funding toward anti-racist Events, Youth Initiatives and Projects in Canada.
