The CRRF COMMUNITY MOBILIZATION FUND (CMF) is a $300,000.00 investment from the Canadian Race Relations Foundation to support charities and non-profit organizations serving vulnerable populations as they manage and take action on anti-racism initiatives.
This grant is being supported by Sun Life, with a generous donation of $60,000.
The Canadian Race Relations Foundation (“Foundation”) was created by the Government of Canada (“Government”) as a Crown Corporation in 1996, as part of the Japanese Canadian Redress Agreement, to reaffirm the principles of justice and equality for all in Canada.
