Canada 150 Grants
About the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th
Canada’s sesquicentennial is an historic moment with the power to bring people and places together as we dream big about our communities and our country. In the spirit of this moment, the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th will activate a breathtaking array of ideas and activities that will bring out the best that Canada has to offer, now and for future generations.
The Community Fund for Canada’s 150th is a small grants program that will support community initiatives in all parts of Canada. The Fund is a collaboration between Canada’s community foundations, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast.
Why are we participating in the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th?
Partnering with the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th provides us with access to matching funding to make more grants to organizations within the Whistler community.
The Community Foundation of Whistler has partnered with the American Friends of Whistler in order to make more funds available to the community.
The grants will:
- ENCOURAGE participation in community activities and events to mark Canada’s 150th.
- INSPIRE a deeper understanding about the people, places and events that shape our communities and our country.
- BUILD vibrant and healthy communities with the broadest possible engagement of all Canadians, including Indigenous peoples, groups that reflect our cultural diversity, youth, and official language minorities.
