Canadian Polish Millennium Fund
was created to commemorate the millennial anniversary of Christianity in
Poland observed in 1966. Initiated at a General
Convention of representatives of the Polish community in Canada in 1960,
the Fund was created by Letters Patent issued in 1964.
The goal of the Fund is to promote the
Polish culture in Canada and to preserve the Polish language. The objectives of the fund include aiding and encouraging
education among people of Polish origin and descent, establishing
scholarships and fellowships for students, financing the publication of
scientific and literary works relating to Polish history and culture,
supporting Polish schools, libraries, academic institutions, Polish
Scouts and other Polish community youth organizations in Canada.
