As patron of Community Foundations of Canada, the Governor General of Canada has asked community foundations to join his call to all Canadians to build a ‘smart and caring nation’ leading up to 2017. His vision inspired and motivated our movement and Smart & Caring Communities is our response.
Smart & Caring Communities is a landmark effort that brings our movement together around two goals: first, to ensure that every community has access to a community foundation by 2017 and second, that communities across the country have access to dedicated resources through Smart & Caring Community Funds established specifically to respond to local priorities.
