About the Belcourt Brosseau Métis Award

Canative Housing Corporation was established in 1971 to address the need for safe, accessible housing for Aboriginal Albertans living in urban centres. In 2001, the directors of Canative Housing, Dr. Herb Belcourt, Orval Belcourt, and Georges Brosseau, QC, established the Belcourt Brosseau Métis Awards Fund at Edmonton Community Foundation.

This Fund provides awards so that Métis Albertans demonstrating financial need, commitment, and a desire to be gainfully employed can realize self-sufficiency through the advancement of their post-secondary education and skills development. Since 2002, the Fund has provided awards totalling over $7.0 million to more than 1,100 Alberta Métis students.

Approximately 160 awards are provided each year, most ranging between $1,000 and $10,000. Size and number of awards may vary.

Deadline is March 31, 2019.
