Applications now open for Community Economic Development grants

January 14, 2020
Announcements and Events

The City is now accepting applications for the annual Community Economic Development Funding Program, which funds projects that reduce barriers to employment and create jobs for disadvantaged populations.

Grants are available for non-profit organizations that are starting businesses and creating jobs, or helping people that are under-represented in the mainstream economy – including lower income youth and older adults, rural residents, new immigrants and visible minorities – to develop entrepreneurial and employability skills.

This program awards up to $280,000 per year to projects that are selected by a jury panel of reviewers. Please consult the eligibility criteria for more details.

Applications are open until Friday, March 20 at 4 pm.

For more information on City programs and services, visit or call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401). You can also connect with us through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
