2017 marks the 150th anniversary of Canada and the Province of Ontario. This milestone in Ontario’s history provides a unique opportunity to strengthen our communities and celebrate the people, places and events that make Ontario a global leader in diversity, creativity, innovation, accessibility and inclusion.
The Government of Ontario is proud to support communities across the province in leveraging the 150th anniversary to achieve community priorities.
Ontario150 Community Capital Program
The Ontario150 Community Capital Program provides one-time funding in 2016/17 to support the repair, renovation or retrofit of existing community facilities – the public places and spaces where Ontarians come together to celebrate, create, play, explore, learn and support one another.
Whether it’s a multicultural centre, soccer pitch or community theatre, these cherished and well-used neighbourhood facilities have played a pivotal role in Ontario’s growth and development. Ontario150 will help ensure they continue to serve community needs well into the future.
The Ontario150 Community Capital Program is administered by the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF). Communities and community organizations that own or operate facilities that offer public programs or services are encouraged to apply. The registration and application window opens July 18, 2016 with submissions due by September 14, 2016, so start preparing today.
GRANT AMOUNT: From $5,000 to $500,000
TERM: Up to 1 year. All projects to be completed by March 31, 2018
