Moving Mountains Initiative – Get Involved!

Moving Mountains is an initiative by and for the people living in the Bow Valley. We are taking a regional, Bow Valley-wide approach to strengthening civil societies across the Bow Valley.

The initiative is a partnership between Banff Canmore Community Foundation (BCCF), and Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) at the Town of Canmore and Town of Banff.

Join the Moving Mountains conversation! “We want to hear from Bow Valley residents – we’re plotting a path towards a stronger civil sector and a healthier, wiser, and more sustainable and inclusive community.”

Register to participate in an upcoming Moving Mountains community dialogue, or recommend someone to attend! Please spread the word about this opportunity with your personal and professional networks in the Bow Valley. Any questions about Moving Mountains? Connect with Jeanie –
