Celebrating Canada’s 150th

The Winnipeg Foundation

True Sport
Welcome to Winnipeg program creates a sense of belonging for newcomers.

Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017 is an historic moment with the power to bring people and places together as we dream big about our communities and our country.

To commemorate this occasion, the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a small grants program supported by Community Foundations of Canada, local community foundations (including The Winnipeg Foundation), and the Government of Canada, helped local charitable organizations put a homegrown spin on Canada’s sesquicentennial celebrations. Some of the projects that received support include: 

  • True Sport’s Community Connections – Welcome to Winnipeg
  • Assiniboine Park Conservancy’s Belonging to the Land: Canada’s National Parks Art Exhibit
  • Boys and Girls Clubs of Winnipeg’s Multicultural Festival
