About the Community Fund
Canada’s sesquicentennial was a historic event that brought people and places together as we dreamed about our communities and our country. In the spirit of this event, the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, activated a breathtaking array of ideas and activities that brought out the best that Canada has to offer, now and for future generations.
The Community Fund for Canada’s 150th was a small grants program that supported community initiatives from coast to coast to coast. The Fund was a collaboration between Canada’s community foundations, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast.
