Grants of up to $50,000 to Ontario non-profits, municipalities, band councils, and Aboriginal organizations for projects that engage the community commemorating the 400th anniversary of the French speaking population's presence in and contributions to the Province. Eligible activities must be open to the public at large without membership in a club or group.
The Ontario 400th Celebrations Program will provide project-based funding to support organizations in developing community engagement projects that celebrate and commemorate 400 years of Francophone presence and contributions in Ontario during 2015. These projects will also be underscored by the anniversary of Samuel de Champlain’s most important voyage to the province.
The overall goal is to provide Ontarians with access to a variety of projects that recognize the important role of Franco-Ontarians in the province’s history and development, while stimulating local economies and tourism in the province.
Applicants must have a sufficient number of bilingual staff, proportional to expected audience size, to offer services in both official languages during the proposed project. (May vary per event type.)
