DEPARTMENT OF CANADIAN HERITAGE

2020 2021 Appreciation and Rapprochement and the Promotion of Bilingual Services Sub-components:

STEP 1 - LETTER OF INTENT
An organization interested in receiving funding in 2020 2021 for the Appreciation and Rapprochement and the Promotion of Bilingual Services sub-components must first submit an overview of the proposed project by completing the letter of intent form.

The Department will evaluate each letter of intent against the program’s objectives (see the attached Applicant’s Guide) and amount of funding available. The Department will then invite organizations whose letter of intent has been recommended to submit a detailed application.

For further information regarding the program’s objectives, please consult the program’s guidelines at:

Guidelines - Promotion of Linguistic Duality - Appreciation and Rapprochement
Guidelines - Promotion of Linguistic Duality - Promotion of Bilingual Services

Interested organizations must send their letter of intent by September 9, 2019 to: pch.dglo-olsp.pch@canada.ca. Any letter of intent received after the deadline will not be considered.

STEP 2 - DETAILED APPLICATION
The second step applies only to organizations who are invited to submit a detailed application.
The Department will contact organizations whose project proposals are accepted to submit a detailed application by September 27, 2019.

The deadline for submitting a detailed application and the required documentation will be included in the invitation. Please note that an invitation to submit a detailed application does not mean that the project proposal will be approved.

Priorities of the Program for 2020-2021 Projects
For the Appreciation and Rapprochement component, the Department will want to prioritize projects that bring together the two language groups (English- and French-speaking Canadians) to achieve a common goal. The active participation of both groups will be encouraged for the success of the project. Concretely, instead of creating contacts where members of both language groups would only have the occasion to interact with each other (for example attending the same show), we will prioritize projects that create situations where participants work together, whether it be create of cultural products, set up youth camps or enhance cultural heritage, etc.

Special attention will be paid to initiatives that aim to create new cooperation opportunities and that seek to increase the meeting spaces between English-speaking and French-speaking Canadians, which may include Aboriginal Canadians, foreign-born people, second-language learners, public institutions, the private sector, etc.
