Smart & Caring Communities

“Imagine our country as it could be… a smart and caring nation, where all Canadians can succeed, contribute, and develop their talents to their fullest potential.” ~ The Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada

Smart & Caring CommunitiesSmart & Caring Communities is a landmark effort that is bringing Canada’s community foundation movement together in response to the Governor General’s call for all Canadians to build a ‘smart and caring nation’ leading up to 2017.

Collectively we are working to ensure that every community has access to a community foundation by 2017, and that communities across the country have access to dedicated resources through Smart & Caring Community Funds established specifically to respond to local priorities.
