Announcing Canada 150 Funding for Simcoe North Projects

The 150th anniversary of Confederation is a unique opportunity to bring Canadians together and strengthen our connections to our communities. The Government of Canada supports and promotes Canada 150 activities, which revolve around four key themes: Diversity and Inclusion, Youth, Environment and National Reconciliation with Indigenous People.

The Canada 150 Fund provides support, in the form of grants and contributions, to help organize unique, region-specific activities. These community activities will be at the heart of the celebrations in 2017.

Eligible applicants:

  • Canadian not-for-profit organizations, including corporations, trusts, cooperatives and unincorporated associations
  • Canadian business corporations, including partnerships, trusts and joint ventures, where projects are non-commercial in nature
  • Canadian schools
  • Canadian municipal governments and their institutions

Information about how to apply may be found below

I would encourage all eligible applicants in Simcoe North to use the 150th celebration of Confederation as an opportunity to make Canada a better place for all.  You may find more information and application forms at the Huronia Community Foundation http://www.huroniacommunityfoundation.com/
