FCC seeks applications for the FCC Expression Fund

Regina, Saskatchewan – Farm Credit Canada (FCC) will once again donate $50,000 from the FCC Expression Fund to encourage the use of Canada’s official languages in communities across the country.

This fund was developed in 2008 to support projects that contribute to the vitality of Canada’s official language minority communities and help residents express the cultural and linguistic diversity of the area.

Successful projects receive between $2,000 and $10,000 to fund initiatives that could include community centres, schools, day care centres and artistic projects, such as theatrical productions, art galleries and concerts.

FCC seeksCommunity and volunteer groups located in English and French linguistic minority communities are encouraged to view the eligibility criteria and apply online at www.fcc.ca/expressionfund. Applications for the FCC Expression Fund will be accepted until February 3. FCC will announce the selected projects in spring 2016.

“As a federal Crown corporation, FCC is committed to communicating with customers and employees in their preferred official language,” said Brenda Stasuik, director, Corporate Social Responsibility at FCC. “Our bilingual heritage is unique and FCC is pleased to support it by offering funding to worthy projects that promote both official languages.”

Last year, the FCC Expression Fund donated $50,000 to nine linguistic minority communities. For more information about the 2015 winners, visit www.fcc.ca/expressionfund.

For a project to be considered for funding, the organization must be a registered charity or a registered non-profit.
