As of August 22 2023, Makivvik will be accepting applications for language and culture funding through the Indigenous Languages Component (ILC) program.

Historically, the ILC has been administered directly by the Department of Canadian Heritage. However, as of 2023, the funding will now flow directly to the four Inuit Land Claims Regions for implementation.

Through this new governance structure, Makivvik is now the entity responsible for the implementation of ILC projects in Nunavik.

Eligible projects for the ILC fund include:

  • Cultural development
  • Conferences/gatherings
  • Community engagement
  • Leadership development toward Inuktitut
  • Life skills and wellness that incorporate the learning of Inuktitut
  • Education and training
  • Production and broadcast of radio, television, and programming
  • Innovation and new technologies
  • Consultation and coordination
  • Research, studies, and community assessment
  • Management and administration

If you are an organization looking for funding to support the reclamation, revitalization, and/ or maintenance of Inuktitut, we welcome you to apply to Makivvik for funding consideration.
