About the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th

The Community Fund for Canada's 150th is a national initiative and collaborative effort seeded by the Government of Canada and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast, and matched and delivered locally by Canada’s 191 community foundations.

Canada’s sesquicentennial is a 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 Fund's objectives:

  • To ENCOURAGE participation in community activities and events to mark Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation.
  • To INSPIRE a deeper understanding about the people, places and events that shape our country and our communities.
  • To 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.
