following lists a few of these resources.
Student Employee Experience
Community Initiative Funds
National Crime Prevention Funding
Federal Population Health

The Community Initiatives Fund (CIF), formerly known as the Associated
Entities Fund, was created in 1995 by the Government of Saskatchewan
Gaming Corporation Act as compensation to non-profit organizations that
were financially hurt by casino expansion through the re-distribution
of casino profits for programs and services that benefit vulnerable
children, youth and families.
The CIF receives 25% of net profits from Regina and Moose Jaw casinos,
and began receiving casino profits in 1996/97. The CIF is managed and
operated by an eight member Board of Trustees accountable to the Legislative
Assembly through the Minister of Culture, Sport, Recreation and Tourism,
with SaskSport Inc. contracted to manage the fund on behalf of the Board
The purpose of the CIF is to provide grants for community initiatives
that enhance human development and community vitality, focusing on:
• Development opportunities for children, youth and families;
• Increase positive activities for young people at the local level,
including physical activity and community arts and culture activity;
• Increase community leadership capacity, particularly leadership
opportunities for youth;
• Inclusion of First Nation and Metis People as leaders in the
delivery of community activities.
Both annual and summer (May-Sept) community projects and services are
funded through the CIF. The Moose Jaw-South Central RIC oversees the
grant process for applicants from the Moose Jaw Region and recommends
the acceptance of grant applications.

Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada’s National Crime
Prevention Center has restructured its funding activities into three
new programs. They have been designed to respond to community demands
for a simplified and more easily accessible funding process, as well
as long-term support for multi-year efforts. These funding programs
renewed emphasis on results, accountability and evidence-based strategies.
Crime Prevention Action Fund
The Crime Prevention Action Fund (CPAF) supports crime prevention initiatives
in communities large and small. It aims to build partnerships between
sectors such as policing, community health, voluntary and private sectors
to enhance community capacity to prevent crime through social development.
It is a federal program that is delivered regionally in partnership
with the provincial and territorial governments, and nationally for
those projects involving more than one jurisdiction.

Policing, Corrections and Communities Fund
The Policing, Corrections and Communities Fund (PCCF) support projects
where community partners work together to prevent crime, primarily through
social development. It is intended for law enforcement agencies, community
corrections groups/organizations, Aboriginal communities, community-based
organizations, and the municipalities in which they work.
Research and Knowledge Development Fund
The Research and Knowledge Development Fund (RKDF) supports a range
of research activities, demonstration projects, knowledge transfer initiatives
and evaluations that:
• Identify and analyze gaps in the current body of knowledge relating
to crime prevention in Canada;
• Create new knowledge in areas where gaps have been identified;
• Synthesize the results of existing research; and
• Contribute to a growing awareness and recognition of promising
practices and models for community-based crime prevention.
The goal of the Federal Population Health Fund is to increase capacity
for action on, or across, the determinants of health. Current priorities
are announced during project solicitation processes, generally in a
Request for Proposal or a solicitation letter.
The Fund is administered through the Public Health Agency of Canada’s
Regional Offices (for provincial, territorial, regional or local projects)
and the National Office in Ottawa (for national projects).
