Co-op Community Spaces invests one million to fund local community projects

For years, Co-op has been creating places for Western Canadians. This year as we’ve been staying safe by staying apart, Co-ops continue to invest in spaces for when we can safely come back together.

Co-op Community Spaces was launched in 2015 to help protect, beautify and improve spaces across Western Canada. Since then, it has provided $9.5 million to 132 projects that improve the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of local communities.

Entering its seventh year, the program is dedicating $1 million in funding and is accepting applications for capital projects that will improve spaces across Western Canada. 

“Locally, Dawson Co-op Co-op is proud to support organizations and projects that make a difference to our members and our community,” said Amber Donovan, Marketing Coordinator of Dawson Co-op.

“Finding ways to support our community is even more important as we’ve been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re looking forward to a time when we’ll all be able to gather as a community again, and we encourage all of our community organizations who could benefit from capital funding to apply.”

Capital funding between $25,000 and $150,000 per project is available. Co-op invites registered non-profit organizations, registered charities or community service co-operatives to apply online between February 1 and March 1, 2021. Program funding categories include recreation, environmental conservation and urban agriculture.
