TWITTER CHAT on Ontario150 Community Capital Program save the date!
2017 marks the 150th anniversary of Canada and the Province of Ontario.
The Ontario150 Community Capital Program provides one-time funding in 2016/17 to support the repair, renovation or retrofit of existing community facilities – the public places and spaces where Ontarians come together to celebrate, create, play, explore, learn and support one another.
For inquiring minds that want to know what it is and if it’s right for your organization, the Ontario Trillium Foundation invites you to join the Twitter Chat Thursday, August 25 from 1 to 2 pm ET. Use #OTFChat to send us your questions before the chat, and to join the conversation on the 25th.
