Small grants of up to $500 are available for residents to develop projects that meet the needs of the community.

Neighbourhood Small Grants are given to projects that meet the following goals:

1. Connect and engage neighbourhood residents
Examples: Block parties to introduce new neighbours or weekly neighbourhood clean-up work parties that strengthen and sustain relationships over time.

2. Share residents’ skills and knowledge within the community
Examples: a free yoga lesson for the community or a community kitchen where participants exchange their cooking skills and share a meal together.

3. Build sense of ownership and pride
Examples: A historical tour of the neighbourhood or a community clean-up of invasive species in a local greenspace.

4. Respect and celebrate diversity
Examples: A multicultural fashion show, a story telling project that involves seniors and youth, or a cost free acrylic workshops open to all ages and skill levels.
