The sixth annual Indigitization Grant Program is now accepting applications from First Nations, Métis and Inuit community institutions and agencies in British Columbia that have preservation of information resources as part of their mandate.

What projects does this grant support?

The Indigitization Grant Program supports projects that convert important community cassette recordings containing cultural heritage information to digital files.

The program offers matching funds of up to $10,000 per project, as well as training and support for community organizations during the digitization process. Participants contribute matching funds and in-kind contributions. The program does not require materials to be made publically available; however, encourages the accessibility of the materials if appropriate.

The Indigitization Grant has been revised with a new application form and guidelines. Previous and new applicants are encouraged to submit proposals. The application form and guidelines can be found online at

The deadline to submit a letter of intent is March 3rd. Details for the Indigitization Grant Program can be found at
