GATINEAU, QC , Dec. 7, 2022 /CNW/ - Library and Archives Canada (LAC) has launched the 2023–2024 funding cycle of its Listen, Hear Our Voices initiative. The deadline for applications is January 31, 2023. Listen, Hear Our Voices provides funding to support First Nations, Inuit and Métis Nation organizations throughout Canada in their efforts to digitize and preserve language and culture materials, and build digitization and preservation capacity for their communities.

Interested organizations should consult the Listen, Hear Our Voices section of the LAC website for information on how to apply.

Prospective applicants are invited to attend informational webinars to learn more about the Listen, Hear Our Voices program and the application process, and to have the opportunity to ask questions. Two webinars will be held in English, and two in French. Please register by noon the day before your preferred session, by writing to ecoutezentendrenosvoix-listenhearourvoices@bac-lac.gc.ca.

An Indigenous review committee, external to LAC, and consisting of First Nations, Inuit and Métis Nation individuals from across Canada, will be reviewing the applications and making recommendations for funding in the spring of 2023.

The Listen, Hear Our Voices initiative is part of the Indigenous Documentary Heritage Initiatives, which were developed in 2017 to increase access to Indigenous-related content in the collections in LAC's care and to support First Nations, Inuit and Métis Nation governments and organizations in their efforts to preserve their culture and language materials.
