What is Alliance 150?
All successful projects of the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th are required to join the Alliance 150 and do the following:
- Post your project or event on the Alliance 150 website
- Add at at least one story and photo to the website
There are instructions on how to do both of these below.
HOW DO I JOIN?
Joining the Alliance is open to anyone – simply visit https://alliance150.ca/
Once you have an account, add your Canada 150 project(s) (ongoing initiatives) and / or your Canada 150 event(s) (time-specific initiatives).
When registering your initiative, be sure to check the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th box under Additional Information.
When registering your event, you will have the option to add it to Passport 2017, the official mobile app for Canada 150 events. Simply check “Also add my event to the Passport 2017 app.” in the event form.
If you require any assistance setting up your account, or resetting the password for an existing account, please visit the Alliance 150 help page or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW DO I SUBMIT A STORY?
Once you have an account, you will have the option to submit a story under the Member Stories section. Tell us: how did your project go? How did your project engage your community? What were some of the outcomes or takeaways? Please also include one photo that represents your project or activity. No specific format is required as long as these key points are covered.
Be sure to check the box “My project received funding from the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th” when submitting your project.
ACCESSING THE NETWORK?
In addition to the digital platform, Alliance members also have access to a large national network of Canadians working on their own Canada 150 projects and can tap into their resources, insights and networks. For updates on Canada 150 activity happening across the country, be sure to also subscribe to the Alliance 150 mailing list.
