During the pandemic, many vital communities service organizations struggled with increased demand, reduced revenues, declines in charitable giving, and a greater reliance on digital tools. By investing in the post-pandemic recovery of these organizations, we’re helping them expand their services and adapt to the changing needs of Canadians.
Our Community Services Recovery Fund (CSRF) provides funding to local organizations to help them adapt, modernize, and equip themselves to improve the services they provide and support staff and volunteers.
Across Canada, 5,500 projects are being funded through the CSRF, including ten in Newmarket-Aurora. Organizations in our community will receive a total of $597,125 to be distributed among:
- The Women’s Centre of York Region- $83,978
- Job Skills – $71,314
- Lupus Canada – $101,773
- The Aurora Sports Hall of Fame – $62,500
- The Literacy Council York-Simcoe – $75,755
- Community Living Central York – $56,796
- Inn From the Cold – $17,759
- Family Services York Region – $99,750
- John Howard Society of York Region – $21,000
- Newmarket Co-operative Homes Inc. – $6,500
By investing in local community services organizations, we’re building resilient communities, supporting post-pandemic revitalization, and helping Canadians access the services they need.
