Civic Events Funding for 2017

Civic Events Funding for 2017

Applications for the Ottawa Civic Events Funding are now available!


2017 will be a year of big, bold, authentic and moving festivities, as Canadians mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation. And we want you and your neighbours to team up to create exciting celebrations in your very own communities.

In honour of this milestone, the Ottawa 2017 Bureau is proudly investing $150,000 towards the Ottawa Civic Events Funding Program to help local organizations plan unique celebrations for Canada’s Sesquicentennial all across the city. We will also provide pageantry kits that we call “Festival in a Box” to help integrate your events into our memorable programming.

So put your thinking cap on, connect with community members and local organizations and submit your idea by Thursday, September 15, 2016 at 4 p.m. (EST).
