Grants of Wikimedia Canada
Ask for a grant or reimbursement for your activities in Canada related to the Wikimedia mission from Wikimedia Canada.
Wikimedia Canada is financed through an annual grant from the Wikimedia Foundation. The current annual grant can be reviewed at meta:Grants:Simple/Applications/Wikimedia Canada/2018/H1. Wikimedia Canada uses this annual grant to execute the activities in its annual plan. The budget for this annual grant is managed by the Programs Committee.

Members of Wikimedia Canada and other volunteers in Canada are invited and encouraged to organize activities in their communities that fit within this annual plan. This page explain how you can seek reimbursements from Wikimedia Canada for your activities.

It is strongly recommended that you first seek pre-approval for your expenses to ensure that you will be reimbursed. If your expenses are not pre-approved, you are taking the risk to not be reimbursed by Wikimedia Canada. Before applying, make sure that your activity fits within the chapter's annual plan. Types of activities that are generally supported include edit-a-thons and photo hunts with the goal of augmenting and/or improving content on Wikimedia projects. Note that all reimbursements made must be in accordance with the Reimbursement Policy.

Reimbursement requests are assessed by the Programs Committee based on the following criterias: how the activity fits within the chapter's annual strategy plan, the impact of the activity, and the requested budget.
