Urban Programming for Indigenous People


The Urban Programming for Indigenous Peoples (UPIP) was created in 2017. The purpose of this program is to help First Nations, Inuit, and Metis make the transition into the urban way of life, through urban centres. Of all the Indigenous peoples living in Canada, more than half of them are living in urban centres.


The UPIP has 4 different ways that they receive funding:

  1. Organizational Capacity
  2. Programs and Services
  3. Coalitions
  4. Research and Innovation
