The State Funding for Social Movements project is a five-year study that examines (a) the history of state funding for social movements in Canada; and (b) how the relationship between state funding and social movements differs across movements, regions, and time periods. The research for this project was divided into three parts: (i) documenting the evolution of federal and provincial government policy towards NGOs (non-governmental organizations) in Canada; (ii) assessing the impact of state funding on NGOs’ strategies for social change; and (iii) creating a public database of public funding for NGOs in Canada. www.StateFunding.ca
