Ontario Preparing for Celebration of Canada’s 150th Anniversary

Organizations invited to apply for project and celebration funding

Mississauga, ON – Amrit Mangat, MPP for Mississauga-Brampton South, is sharing news about part of Ontario’s plan to mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation and of Ontario as a province within Canada.

 The Ontario150 Program is a series of events and initiatives that will stretch to every corner of our province, showcasing Ontario’s innovative spirit, our culture and our community diversity.

 In addition to a number of signature events planned across the province, municipalities, community organizations and Indigenous groups will be able to access funding programs designed to bring people together, while laying the groundwork for a strong economic, social and cultural legacy for Ontario’s next 150 years. 

 There are three application-based Ontario150 grant programs. They include: 

  • Community Capital Program — a $25 million fund to renovate, repair and retrofit existing community and cultural infrastructure to increase access, improve safety and maximize community use (application period closes September 14, 2016)
  • Partnership Program — a $5 million program to support new partnerships and collaborations that engage, enable and empower youth as the next generation of Ontario leaders (application period closes September 30, 2016)
  • Community Celebration Program —a $7 million fund to help communities celebrate this historic year (application period closes September 2, 2016).



 “As we approach the 150th anniversary of Ontario as a province in Canada, I encourage organizations to help celebrate this milestone by applying for funds that could help them improve our communities and plan celebrations.”
