New Programs Kick-Off Ontario’s 150th Anniversary: FedeliJuly 7, 2016
NORTH BAY – New programs are launching to help local organizations celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017, Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli said today.
As a founding province, Ontario is joining the celebration with three new one-time grants under the Ontario150 program. They include:
- The Community Capital Program — a $25 million fund to renovate, repair and retrofit existing community and cultural infrastructure to increase access, improve safety and maximize community use (application period opens July 18 and closes September 14, 2016);
- The Partnership Program — a $5 million program to support new partnerships and collaborations that engage, enable and empower youth as the next generation of Ontario leaders (application period opens July 6 and closes September 30, 2016);
- And the Community Celebration Program —a $7 million fund to help communities celebrate this historic year (application period opens July 6 and closes September 2, 2016).
“In less than 6 months, our community will come together in celebration, as we mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation in Canada,” said Fedeli.
“I encourage local organizations to apply to these programs as we celebrate this important milestone in our nation’s history.”
