Healthy Communities Initiative

Community Foundation of Mississauga takes part in a new Healthy Communities Initiative

COVID-19 has seriously 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 CFC and the Government of Canada and other community foundations across the Golden Horseshoe 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.

The Golden Horseshoe Hub consists of the following Community Foundations: The Oakville Community Foundation, Brampton and Caledon Community Foundation, Brant County Community Foundation, Burlington Foundation, Community Foundation of Halton North, Hamilton Community Foundation, Community Foundation of Mississauga and Niagara Community Foundation.

The round 2 application period for funding will take place betweeen May 14th and June 25th, 2021.
