Ontario Trillium Foundation announcements for sports and arts groups

In our November 2020 Ontario Budget analysis, we were pleased to report a new $100 million investment over two years in the Community Building Fund for arts/heritage and sport groups. The $25 million that was intended to provide relief in 2020-21 did not flow this fiscal year and so is part of the $105 million announcement this month that will flow in 2021-22. Application details will be released shortly and you can apply between March 31 and April 28, 2021.

In a second press release in as many days, OTF announced $15.3 million to support sports and recreation, of which $6.6 million is for nonprofits: $3 million in 2020-21 for SPORT4ONTARIO and $3.6 million for 63 recognized Provincial Sport Organizations. ONN is pleased to see OTF granting infrastructure being used by the government to get funds to communities - especially for general operating support; however, we want to ensure that their broad mandate to support the whole sector is not compromised.
