A New Trail: Fundraising for Cultural Research and Land Use and Occupancy Studies


Fundraising for Cultural Research and Land Use and Occupancy Studies - A Reference Guide For Securing Funds

Prepared by the Aboriginal Mapping Network and Ecotrust Canada with support from the Walter and Duncan Gordon Foundation

The goal of this guidebook is to help make the fundraising task easier for you. Through discussions with practitioners and funding agencies from across Canada, we have compiled a short -list of funding programs that might provide support for your cultural research projects.

This guidebook also includes links to other funding reference tools, links to wage subsidy and employment programs that can help off-set the costs of your research, and an appendix of names of practitioners that have done a land use and occupancy research project or are engaged in this type of activity.
