Urban Programming for Indigenous Peoples


$53 million each year for five years.


Urban Programming for Indigenous Peoples is designed to assist First Nations (status and non-status), Inuit and Métis living in or transitioning to urban centres. The program was created in 2017, based on feedback received during the engagement on the Urban Aboriginal Strategy that took place in 2016.

Eligible Applicants

Each stream of UPIP funding has its own eligibility requirements. Common requirements for all streams include:

  • recipients must be located in an urban centre
  • all initiatives and projects must advance the objectives of Urban Programming for Indigenous Peoples

In addition, all non-Indigenous organizations, including municipal governments, health and education authorities and institutions, require demonstrated support from Indigenous organizations or Indigenous community groups to be eligible for funding.

Eligible Expenses

The program has four funding streams:

  1. Organizational capacity
  2. Programs and services
  3. Coalitions
  4. Research and innovation
