In May 2020, the Indigenous Innovation Initiative launched the inaugural Advancing Indigenous Gender Equality through Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship Program. We received 238 applications from 115 distinct communities across Canada - see this resource for more details on these applications. 

On May 5, 2021, we announced the first 10 innovation projects to receive funding through the Gender Equality Program. Watch a recording of the May 5, 2021 press conference here.
