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 birthday 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 from coast to coast to coast. The Fund is a collaboration between the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta, the Government of Canada, Community Foundations of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast.

The Fund is based on grassroots leadership, and will take on a local focus and timeline in each community.

Why is the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta participating in the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th?    To match funding to make more grants to organizations within Northwestern Alberta. These grants will be responsive to regional priorities, connected to Canada’s sesquicentennial and will foster a greater sense of belonging, inclusion and reconciliation in our community.
