    The Healthy Communities Initiative – $31 million to transform public spaces in response to COVID-19.
    Public spaces are the glue to our communities: they enable a feeling of belonging, of social cohesion and encourage our sense of collective identity. COVID-19 has seriously constrained our access and use of these spaces in communities across Canada. Impacts of the virus have also been extraordinarily uneven, underscoring inequalities across communities and disproportionately impacting those who are already experiencing vulnerability as a result of systemic inequalities.

    The first Government of Canada grant is due March 9 and there will be another funding release in May. Lots of great opportunities to collaboratively develop a comprehensive plan that will maximize partnerships and funding for a community.
    The Town of Banff is discussing ideas for this grant – if you are thinking of applying in Banff let us know
