New Emergency Community Support Fund

Vulnerable populations across Canada continue to be disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Marginalized groups, youth, children and the elderly, essential workers, and newcomers are just some of the communities that are facing increased challenges right now. Launched on May 19, 2020, the Government of Canada’s new Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) aims to provide additional and much-needed assistance to charities and non-profit organizations serving vulnerable populations.  

The Government of Canada is flowing funds through national networks, including Community Foundations of Canada (CFC)United Way Centraide Canada and the Canadian Red Cross. We are proud to be working with CFC and the Government of Canada to deliver funding locally in Whistler and Pemberton to ensure that our most vulnerable citizens are safe and healthy. Through the ECSF, we will be investing $40,000 towards local charities and qualified donees supporting vulnerable populations. Organizations can apply starting on May 19, 2020. Learn more about the program and find out if your organization is eligible to apply visit: or contact us direct by email at
