Emergency Assistance Fund for Community Organizations

We recognize that local groups and community organizations continue to have expenses to maintain important community halls and facilities. At the same time, they have not been able to host planned fundraising events and activities. The inability to hold these fundraising events and activities has resulted in significant financial hardship.

The Municipality has established this Emergency Assistance Fund to assist local groups and organizations in addressing the financial hardship caused by ongoing maintenance costs and the inability to host planned fundraising events and activities during the Covid-related public health restrictions.
