Celebrate Canada 150 with Your Neighbours
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 and a potluck featuring childhood favourites.
The deadline to submit applications for Markham’s Canada 150 Neighbourhood Grant program has now closed. Recipients will be notified shortly.
