Funding Available for Community Infrastructure Through the Canada 150 Program

You are here

In 2017, Canadians across the country will celebrate Canada's 150th Anniversary of Confederation (Canada 150), a key milestone in the life of our country. The overarching theme to celebrating Canada 150 is "Strong. Proud. Free”, which includes a vision to Give Back to Canada, through lasting legacies that extend beyond 2017.

As part of the government-wide Canada 150 celebrations, the Government of Canada has launched the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, which will invest $150 million over two years to projects that will rehabilitate and improve existing cultural and community infrastructure across Canada. These projects will reflect our shared history and optimism for the future while leaving a lasting legacy in celebration of Canada 150.
