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 $3.9 million to support the powerful work of over 200 organizations across Canada. We are excited to announce that we are once again accepting applications from organizations working on anti-racism events and youth initiatives in Canada to be supported by NARF 2023/24.

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. The National Anti-Racism Fund (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 creating 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. 

Apply for funding through our Event and Youth Initiative Grants

The National Anti-Racist Fund (NARF)’s Event and Youth Initiative Grants are one of the ways that the CRRF invests in community-based projects to fight against racism and discrimination in Canada.
