The City of Markham is joining municipalities from coast-to-coast-to-coast to honour Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017.
We’ll be celebrating with a year’s worth of exciting signature events and programs for all members of the community to enjoy.
Come back soon to see what we have planned for Markham, the nation’s most diverse city!
Celebrate Canada 150 YOUR Way!
Are you interested in doing something in your community to celebrate Canada 150 with your neighbours? The City of Markham would like to help!
The City has created Markham’s Canada 150 Neighbourhood Grant program to mark this special anniversary by strengthening connections right where our residents live – in their neighbourhood. Grants of up to $500 are available to support Markham residents and community groups in undertaking neighbourhood projects that encourage participation in marking Canada’s 150th anniversary throughout 2017. Ideas include tree plantings, sharing stories of Canada, historical neighbourhood tours, potluck featuring childhood favourites – all creative, interesting ideas are welcomed!
Application deadline is May 5, 2017.
