What is the Community Grant Program?

The program was launched in 2013 by our Scotford asset and has since expanded to include more of our operating areas. It is a separate funding initiative from our general social investments designed to support one-time community projects that are sustainable over the long term. 

Some amazing projects do not meet the criteria set out for our general social investment funding for various reasons. Through the Community Grant Program, we are able to offer $5,000 grants to successful applicants.

Who is eligible?

Non-profit organizations can apply for grant funding.

Organizations not eligible for a grant include: individuals or individual pursuits, for-profit businesses, sports teams, sports tournaments, homeowners’ associations, fraternal or labour organizations, political organizations, and religious organizations for the sole benefit of the organization.

If your organization or project doesn’t fit the eligibility requirements above, read more about our general social investment funding for other opportunities.
