On January 10th MPP Sylvia Jones announced that seven Dufferin-Caledon non-profit organizations are included in the latest round of Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) grant funding.
The Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF), established in 1982 to help fund social service organizations in Ontario, is an agency of the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, and works to build healthy and vibrant communities across Ontario. Its programs support the arts, culture, sports and recreation, heritage, human and social services, and environment sectors.
This latest round of OTF funding includes capitol grant funding that is intended to help the following Dufferin-Caledon non-profit organizations deliver much-needed community support programs:

“Safe, accessible and well-equipped infrastructure is essential for healthy, vibrant communities. Having appropriate spaces and equipment ensures that non-profit organizations can deliver high-quality programming to the communities they serve,” said Katharine Bambrick, CEO, Ontario Trillium Foundation. “These capital projects are vital and are expected to enhance over 4.5 million square feet of community spaces for Ontarians.”
Funded projects will:
- Improve access to facilities, programs, activities, and services
- Improve existing spaces and support new build projects
- Make better use of technology
“Non-profit organizations across our province deliver programming that makes a difference – whether helping people train for new careers, learn new things or simply connect with those around them,” said Neil Lumsden, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport. “That’s why capital grant support is so important.”
