Helping communities at risk protect themselves from hate-motivated crimes

To help reduce hate-motivated crimes in Canadian communities, Public Safety Canada will open calls for proposals for a renewed Communities at Risk: Security Infrastructure Program (SIP) on December 1st.


Quick Facts

  • SIP funds projects for security infrastructure enhancements to eligible not-for-profit organizations linked to a community at risk of being victimized by hate-motivated crime.
  • Program funds help cover the costs of minor security infrastructure enhancements such as lighting, fencing, cameras, and alarms systems.
  • Approved projects may receive up to 50% of total project costs, up to a maximum of $100,000 per project.
  • Proposals for the new intake process will now be accepted from December 1st to January 31st and from June 1st to July 31st of each year. This change has been implemented to help process proposals and move funds to eligible communities as quickly and efficiently as possible.
