Repatriation Grant

The Repatriation Grant is made possible by the Provincial Government of BC working in partnership with the Royal BC Museum. In 2016, funding was allocated to the Royal BC Museum to create a repatriation program that assists First Nations communities in repatriating ancestral remains, cultural objects and intangible cultural heritage.

The Royal BC Museum makes Repatriation Grants available to BC First Nations and associated organizations (such as a cultural society, repatriation committee etc.) for the purposes of assisting in consultation, documentation and repatriation of First Nations cultural items, ancestral remains and burial items as well as intangible cultural heritage from global museums.

The application process closed on May 31, 2018.
