*New grants to promote reconciliation by educating people about B.C.'s past*

Indigenous communities, local governments and heritage organizations in
British Columbia will soon have access to funding for projects that
spotlight the Province’s diverse cultural heritage.

“It has been 150 years since B.C. joined confederation, but the history of
this place stretches back to time immemorial,” said Josie Osborne, Minister
of Municipal Affairs. “To heal and move forward together, it is important
that everyone sees themselves reflected in B.C.’s heritage and cultural
programs. This is an opportunity for people to learn more about B.C.’s

projects that educate people about B.C.’s colonial past, advance
reconciliation and promote inclusivity and diversity for the province’s

heritage organizations with an Indigenous or heritage mandate are eligible
to submit applications starting in fall 2021. (...)
