About the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th

The Salt Spring Island Foundation was proud to participate in The Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, which  provides small grants to support a wide range of local projects that build community, inspire a deeper understanding of Canada, and encourage participation in a wide range of initiatives that mark Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation.

The fund is a collaboration between Canada’s community foundations, the Government 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.

The Foundation was pleased to support nine projects that brought islanders together to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday and inspire a deeper understanding about the people, places and events that shape our community and our country.
