Canada Healthy Communities Initiative

Saskatoon Community Foundation is now taking applications for the Canada Healthy Communities Initiative grants program. This initiative is designated for enhancing and creating vibrant and accessible public spaces. $31M will be invested across Canada, administered by Community Foundations of Canada.

Saskatchewan will receive over $976,000 in funding through the initiative. Non-profit organizations, charities, Indigenous communities, and local governments are invited to apply online through Saskatoon Community Foundation.

CHCI is focused on public spaces which encourage a sense of belonging and collective identity, increasingly important in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. It will help communities:

  • create safe and vibrant public spaces,
  • improve mobility options, and
  • provide innovative digital solutions to connect people and improve health.

Funding applications for the CHCI first phase may be submitted between February 9, 2021 and March 9, 2021. A second round of applications is expected to take place in May 2021.
