Urban Programming for Indigenous Peoples (UPIP) was created in 2017, based on feedback received during the engagement on the Urban Aboriginal Strategy that took place in 2016.
These programs have been designed to facilitate the transition of Indigenous people to cities. These allow, in particular the National Movement of Friendship Centres in Canada, to receive funding to provide services and programs to Indigenous people in the cities.
In Quebec, the National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC) has mandated the Regroupement des centres d’amitié autochtones du Québec to manage and redistribute funding in the (1) Organizational Capacity and (2) Programs and Programs components within the Native Friendship Centres in Quebec, that are affiliated to the NAFC.
This stream offers core funding for up to five years to Indigenous organizations that deliver programs or services to urban Indigenous peoples. Core funding covers the day-to-day operating costs of an organization, like staffing of key positions, utilities, rent, etc.
The 2018-2019 beneficiaries of this component are:
|Centre d’amitié autochtone de Lanaudière||$120 000|
