Indigenous communities will soon have more financial support in order to establish and take care of Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas (IPCAs), courtesy of World Wildlife Fund Canada.
This new support fund will offer communities anywhere from $50,000 to $150,000 in grants and contracts for up to three years, in order to help Indigenous communities and organizations consider, establish, and take care of IPCAs all across so-called Canada.
The primary goal of this new fund is to promote biodiversity and provide Indigenous communities that choose to engage in IPCAs with financial assistance for a wide range of resources.
