Community Spaces Funding

Community Spaces was developed to support projects in the communities across Western Canada in which we live, work and operate. Projects can apply for between $25,000 and $150,000 in capital funding in three categories: recreation, environmental conservation, and urban agriculture.

  • Non-profit organizations registered under their provincial government with proof of registration (e.g. letters of incorporation)
  • Non-profit organizations working with their municipal government who will accept funding and issue receipts on their behalf
  • Community service co-operatives

What criteria must projects meet?

  • Align with one of the three funding categories (recreation, environmental conservation or urban agriculture)
  • Be completed within two years
  • Be a capital project
