We are pleased to announce the 2022-2023 CANB Grant Program.


Through this program, successful applicants can receive funding to support archival projects undertaken at your archives. Funding is available for the following types of projects: Arrangement and Description; Reformatting & Migration; Equipment Purchase; and Training & Professional Development.


Archival institutions must be CANB members in good standing in order to qualify for a grant. Qualified applicants may submit more than one grant application.


Please make sure to read over the new Guidelines to make sure that your project qualifies for funding. Applications will be reviewed by the CANB Executive Committee, and announcements will be made to successful applicants in June.


Applications must be submitted to the Archives Advisor by May 27, 2022.

A mid-term check in with the Archives Advisor will happen by telephone or email in the fall.
A final report must be submitted to the CANB by March 31, 2023.
