Grants for Canada’s 150th Projects Distributed Across Grey Bruce
Celebrations marking Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017 will be in place across Grey & Bruce Counties and First Nations thanks to grants from Community Foundation Grey Bruce and Community Foundations of Canada.
A total of $50,000 was distributed on Tuesday, December 13th to ten projects that encourage community participation, inspire a deeper understanding of the people, places and events that have shaped our country, and build vibrant and healthy communities.
Grants were awarded to the following:
1. The History of the Nawash
The Maadooki Senior’s Group, in collaboration with the local Canadian Federation of University Women, will craft Polly Keeshig-Tobias’s book “The Illustrated History of Chippewas of Nawash” into a play. It will educate and inform the community by sharing the language and culture of the First Nations and it will also serve to bring First Nations and non-Aboriginal communities together. This event will also be documented and shared within the Book of Celebration housed in Ottawa. Grant: $10,000
