The Gwaii Trust Society is participating in the Emergency Community Support Fund alongside communities coast to coast to coast.
Vulnerable populations across Canada continue to be disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Marginalized groups, youth, children and the elderly, essential workers, and newcomers are just some of the communities that are facing increased challenges right now.
Launched on May 19, 2020, the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) aims to provide additional and much-needed assistance to charities and non-profit organizations serving vulnerable populations. The Government of Canada is flowing funds through national networks, including Community Foundations of Canada, United Way Centraide Canada and the Canadian Red Cross. We are proud to be working with CFC and the Government of Canada to deliver funding on Haida Gwaii to ensure that our most vulnerable citizens are safe and healthy.
The deadline for the next round of funding is October 30, 2020 at 8:59pm.
