Public Safety Canada Communities at Risk: Security Infrastructure Program (SIP)
Funding is available to private, not-for-profit organizations that are at risk of being victimized by hate- motivated crime. It helps with the cost of security infrastructure improvements for:
- Places of worship such as a temple, mosque, synagogue, gurdwara or church, where a group of people can gather to perform acts of religious praise, meditation, honour or devotion;
- Provincially/territorially recognized private educational institutions, including primary and secondary schools; and
- Community centres, such as a community drop-in centre or aboriginal Friendship Centre, where members of a community can gather year-round for social or cultural activities.
For the purpose of the SIP, a hate-motivated crime is described as a criminal offence motivated by hate towards an identifiable group. Some groups, by virtue of their color, race, ethnic and/or national origins, sexual orientation, religious affiliation or some other attribute are at risk of being the victims of hate-motivated crime.
