Giving Back

Between April 5th and July 17, 2019, the National Archives of Canada will be providing funding and digitizing services to eligible indigenous organizations as part of their Listen, Hear our Voices initiative.  The goal of the initiative is to help preserve indigenous cultures and language.  In addition to the digitization, the National Archives will be providing training to help the participating organizations build the necessary skills to take the tenants of the initiative back to their communities.  A committee made up of representatives from First Nation, Inuit and Metis Nation will review applications and make recommendations. The Listen initiative is part of the Indigenous Documentary Heritage Initiative, which is a portion of a greater 5-year Indigenous Heritage Action Plan created by the Canadian government and the Library and Archives of Canada.
