NRT supports initiatives in five areas: Education, Governance Capacity, Language, Youth & Elders, and Economic Development. Click on the links below for full strategic initiative information. Application guidelines and deadlines are in the Funding section of the website.
Education Initiatives encourage First Nation youth to pursue higher education and help communities to implement local education initiatives for high school youth.
Governance Capacity Initiatives help build capacity within First Nations communities so they can effectively participate in and benefit from land-use planning, resource revenue-sharing, and economic development opportunities.
Language Initiatives protect and preserve our First Nation languages and increase the number of trained teachers of those languages.
Elders & Youth
Elders & Youth initiatives support community based projects, activities and events for Youth and Elders.
Economic Development support is focused on the creation of a province-wide strategic direction for our First Nation communities to further their individual and collective economic development goals.
NRT also supports Special Projects. We host the annual Young Entrepreneurs Symposium (YES), and each year we host an annual Golf Tournament to raise support for post-secondary Scholarships and Bursaries.
