The CRFC announces Amplifying Voices, a new funding stream for Indigenous broadcasters

The Community Radio Fund of Canada (CRFC) is happy to announce Amplifying Voices, a new funding stream to support Indigenous broadcasters in strengthening Indigenous language content at the local level. 

The goals of the program are to :

  • Improve Indigenous Language Content produced by Indigenous radio broadcasters
  • Increase Indigenous Language Content produced by Indigenous radio broadcasters
  • Contribute to the preservation, promotion, and revitalization of Indigenous languages and cultures
  • Impact the communities served by Indigenous broadcasters

All Indigenous Type B radio stations are eligible for the program and can receive up to $20,000 for multi-year programming initiatives. Applications will be reviewed by a jury of Indigenous language experts, authors, producers, and broadcasters. 

The CRFC will be accepting applications via its portal until Friday March 7th at 3:00PM ET. Late applications will unfortunately not be considered. 

We strongly encourage applicants to review the program guidelines and to contact our Programs Director Emmanuel Sayer with any questions or comments. 

The CRFC would like to acknowledge the Inspirit Foundation and Suncor Community Foundation for their generous support.
