Canada Healthy Communities Initiative

COVID-19 has seriously impacted our access and use of public spaces which are the glue to our communities. They are a big part of what makes communities safe, vibrant and connected.

The Healthy Communities Initiative is a $31 million investment from the Government of Canada to support communities as they create and adapt public spaces to respond to the new realities of COVID-19.  We are proud to be working with CFC and the Government of Canada  and other community foundations in Alberta North HUB to provide $1.06 Million of funding to support organizations who are showing creativity and resourcefulness in creating solutions that enable people to connect and access public spaces safely while still respecting public health measures.

Organizations can apply from February 9, 2021, at 1:00 PM EST until March 9, 2021, at 5:00 PM PST.
