Grants to Northern Canada diverse teams of organizations and individuals for programs and projects that address community needs and challenges. Nominated teams should address the root causes, rather than the symptoms of priority issue areas in the Canadian Arctic. Geographically, the impacts of the proposed project must take place within the eligible region of the Arctic Inspiration Prize, specifically, Yukon, the Northwest Territories, the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, Nunavut, Nunavik, and Nunatsiavut.
Grants are available in the following categories:
- Arctic Inspiration Prize
- $1 Million Arctic Inspiration Prize
- Youth AIP
The AIP covers any opportunities or challenges that are of importance to the Canadian Arctic and its peoples. A project can have one or more focus areas such as, but not limited to, education, training, health and wellness, environment and climate change, recreation, tourism, culture, and economic development.
The AIP inspires team building and encourages these teams to develop innovative projects that provide a near-term benefit to Arctic communities. It enables teams to carry out projects, celebrates their achievements and, in so doing, inspires others to follow suit. Proposed projects should be based upon traditional knowledge, scientific research, and/or practical knowledge in order to be eligible.
Programs should have the following impact:
- $1 Million category: Long term impact across a large geographic area or a profound impact in a smaller area
- AIP category: Impact in a larger or smaller geographic area, preferably in the long term
- Youth category: Impact at the community level or beyond. Submissions in this category can also be for activities that would prepare a team to submit a nomination for a $1 Million or AIP prize in 2020.
