Ontario Helping Dufferin-Caledon Non-Profits Improve Community Services

Capital funding will support vital programming and services for people who need it the most

ORANGEVILLE ― MPP Sylvia Jones announced that the Ontario government is providing more than $638,000 in capital grant funding through the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) to help 7 non-profit organizations in the region deliver much-needed community support programs.

“Non-profit organizations across our province deliver programming that makes a difference – whether helping people train for new careers, learn new things or simply connect with those around them,” said Neil Lumsden, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport. “That’s why capital grant support is so important. With this funding, we’re helping to ensure that the spaces that provide these vital services remain the heart of Ontario’s communities.”

“Our government is making sure people across Dufferin-Caledon have safe and accessible facilities through the Ontario Trillium Foundation capital funding stream, making it easier for Ontarians to participate in community programs and services in sports, theatre and seniors programs,” said Sylvia Jones, MPP for Dufferin-Caledon.

These grants will support organizations that are making a positive impact in communities throughout the province.

Having appropriate spaces and equipment ensures that non-profit organizations can deliver high-quality programming to the communities they serve,” said Katharine Bambrick, CEO, Ontario Trillium Foundation. “These capital projects are vital and are expected to enhance over 4.5 million square feet of community spaces for Ontarians.”

  • Improve access to facilities, programs, activities, and services
