Emergency Community Support Fund

With COVID-19 cases increasing in many communities, and a continuous call for emergency relief, the ECSF reopened in October with a second round of funding, providing much-needed assistance to charities and non-profit organizations serving communities experiencing vulnerability. The Government of Canada is flowing this funding through Community Foundations of Canada, United Way Centraide Canada and the Canadian Red Cross. We are proud to be working with CFC and the Government of Canada to deliver funding locally to ensure that our citizens are safe and healthy. Through the ECSF Round 2, we will be investing $30,000 towards local charities and qualified donees supporting people experiencing heightened vulnerability.

UPDATE NOVEMBER 2, 2020: The application phase for this program is now closed. We will announce the recipients in the coming weeks.
