The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our access and use of public spaces which are the glue to our communities. They are a big part of what makes communities safe, vibrant and connected. The Healthy Communities Initiative is a $31 million investment from the Government of Canada to support communities as they create and adapt public spaces to respond to the new realities of COVID-19. 

We are proud to be working with Community Foundations of Canada, the Canadian Urban Institute, the Government of Canada and other community foundations in the Golden Horseshoe area of Southern Ontario to provide $1,840,190 of funding to support organizations who are showing creativity and resourcefulness in creating solutions that enable people to connect and access public spaces safely while still respecting public health measures. 

Organizations can apply between May 14, 2021 and June 25, 2021 for Round 2 funding.
