Canada Budget 2024 includes funding for culture, language, education

The Government of Canada has released its Budget 2024, which includes investments in Indigenous culture, learning, and language. Of particular note, the budget includes an investment of $243M to unlock pathways to postsecondary education for the next generation of First Nations university and college students. The investment builds on the 2019 budget’s funding for Métis and Inuit postsecondary education. Canada is also creating a National School Food Program, which will provide $1B over five years to expand access to school food programs. The program includes targeted investments for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities, which have “some of the highest rates of food insecurity in Canada.”
