Is there a specific area in your community that would benefit from more trees? Would you like Tree Canada to help you put together a planting event to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary? If so, you are a perfect candidate to apply for this grant!
Trees are a symbol of growth, strength, sustainability, hope, and peace. In 2017, Tree Canada is offering Canadians the opportunity to unite in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary by supporting 150 community greening initiatives across the country. There are opportunities for communities, businesses, and individuals to get involved.
Successful recipients of the Tree to Our Nature, Canada 150 Legacy Program funding are eligible for a grant of up to $5,000 to help bring their community tree planting celebration to fruition.
Tree Canada will target applications from Canadian visible minority groups, First Nations, new Canadians, and low income areas, but will consider applicants from all sectors.
This program has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.
