We see Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017 as an important moment in our country’s history, and its future. It’s an opportunity, not only to celebrate together, but to reach across divides and build new connections. To weave together thousands of local stories to build a new narrative of our country and its peoples. And to imagine what’s next together.
Our focus on building a smart and caring country has put our community foundation movement at the forefront of conversations around Canada’s 150th. Community Foundations of Canada is playing a catalytic role in convening national organizations interested in Canada’s 150th through the 150Alliance and inviting Canadians to join us on the countdown to 2017.
We’re also taking part in important conversations that will shape Canada’s next 150 years, such as the opportunity to redefine the relationship between indigenous and non-indigenous peoples, and create a new sense of fairness, connection and belonging within our communities.
