Justice and Reconciliation Fund Committee

Justice and Reconciliation Fund Committee

Job Number: 
Opening/Closing Date: 
June 1, 2018 to June 29, 2018
Anticipated Start Date: 
August 1, 2018

The Justice and Reconciliation Fund was established in 2000 by the Residential Schools Steering Committee of The United Church of Canada to assist the church to understand and respond to the legacy of harm and broken relationships that have resulted from the Indian Residential School system. The fund supports projects that foster dialogue, reconciliation, and relationship-building between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.

A five-member Justice and Reconciliation Fund Committee is responsible for reviewing all applications to the fund and making decisions on grants. Members of the committee are United Church members from both Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities of faith across Canada. At this time, the committee is seeking one member from Quebec.

The number of applications to the fund has been rising. Committee members should expect to review 10 to 20 projects before each meeting and be comfortable with participating in a decision-making meeting by conference call for up to two hours at a time.

Appointments will be made by the Indigenous Justice and Residential Schools Committee. The term of appointment is for three years, with the possibility of reappointment for a second term.
