Ontario is supporting 145 projects that will make positive changes in communities across the province.
In Barrie, the province is supporting the following project:
The project is part of the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Grow Investment Stream, which helps organizations expand an existing, proven not-for-profit project. An additional project by the Barrie and Community Health Team is being supported by the Collective Impact Grants, which helps organizations work together to address complex issues in their community.
Our investments will make a difference in people’s lives through activities that encourage active lifestyles, promote arts and culture, build engaged communities, support a healthy and sustainable environment, and invest in the positive development of youth and children.
Supporting strong, healthy communities is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
“It is always inspiring to see how non-profit and charitable organizations, such as Passerelle Intégration et Développement Économique, play a key role in enhancing people’s lives by finding new and innovative ways to address community needs. Ontario believes in equal opportunity when it comes to grant initiatives that support cultural preservation in communities. Through the Ontario Trillium Foundation, our government recognizes the good work and positive impact of projects in communities all across the province.”
— Eleanor McMahon, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport
“With the support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, local non-profits in can continue to deliver services and initiatives that make a real difference in the lives of residents in Barrie. I am thrilled our government is supporting these valuable organizations and look forward to seeing the positive impact it has on the community.”
— Ann Hoggarth, MPP for Barrie
“We are proud to support excellent projects across Ontario, and we thank all our volunteers for their work in assessing these great grants. With projects like these, communities will thrive. We are glad to support Francophone, Indigenous, rural communities and other underserved communities with the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport to ensure that we are building healthy and vibrant communities.”
