Canada 150 Neighbourhood Grant Program Banner May 18, 2017, the City of Markham’s Canada 150 Neighbourhood Grant Program approved  more than $36,000 in funding for 91 local community projects. Residents and community members submitted applications for local projects and events in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation.

Markham’s Canada 150 Neighbourhood Grant Program was created to strengthen connections right where residents live – in their neighbourhood. Each successful grant applicant will receive up to $500 in funding to help them get their initiative started. Visitors to Markham and members of the community can expect to see several new and exciting community-led projects and events during 2017 that embrace the themes of:

  • Respect, history and diversity
  • Building community pride
  • Connecting residents to Canada 150

These include initiatives such as: community cleanups, recreation events, children’s drawing competitions, potlucks, block parties, community fairs, musicals, tree plantings and much more!
