For nine years, Farm Credit Canada (FCC) has been contributing to the vitality of Canada’s official languages through the FCC Expression Fund. This year, $50,000 was awarded to eight minority language projects across Canada.
“FCC applauds these eight non-profit organizations in their efforts to help their communities express their cultural and linguistic diversity,” said Brenda Stasuik, FCC director, Corporate Social Responsibility. “This year, we received over 110 applications for funding from communities across Canada, which demonstrates that many worthy organizations are working hard to keep both official languages thriving in their communities.”
Community groups will once again have an opportunity to apply for the FCC Expression Fund in January 2017.
