Ontario is supporting 145 projects that will make positive changes in communities across the province.
In Kitchener Centre, the province is supporting the following projects:
The projects are part of the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Grow Investment Stream, which helps organizations expand an existing, proven not-for-profit project.
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 our community can continue to deliver services and initiatives that make a real difference in the lives of residents in Kitchener Centre. By supporting these valuable organizations, we are helping to deliver services to those residents in the community who need help the most.”
— Daiene Vernile, MPP for Kitchener Centre
“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.”
— Tim Jackson, Board Chair, Ontario Trillium Foundation
“Alzheimer Society Waterloo Wellington is so grateful to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for supporting Minds in Motion. There is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease or dementia but we do know that regular exercise and social activity helps to delay the progression of the disease and support an enhanced quality of life for both the client and the care partner. This grant will provide enhanced access that will support many people with dementia to live their best day.”
— Michelle Martin, Executive Director, Alzheimer Society of Waterloo Wellington
“Thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation, we will be able to significantly expand and improve upon our longstanding Newcomer Health Programs. We plan to begin to offer the programs in several new languages to ensure that all members of our diverse community have access to accurate information and support around family planning and health relationships.”
— Lyndsey Butcher, Executive Director, SHORE Centre
“We are very excited about this opportunity to help more students who are in need of additional support in our community. Together with our volunteer mentors we know this program will have a real impact of the lives of local families and their children.”
— Mallory Boyer, Resource Development Manager, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Waterloo Region
