Emergency Community Support Fund
The CBT is assisting with the local delivery of the Government of Canada's Emergency Community Support Fund, which provides much-needed assistance to charities and non-profit organizations serving vulnerable populations during COVID-19.

The Government of Canada is flowing funds through national networks, including Community Foundations of Canada (CFC), United Way Centraide Canada and the Canadian Red Cross. We are proud to help deliver funding in the Clayoquot Biosphere Region to ensure that our most vulnerable citizens are safe and healthy. Through the ECSF, we will be investing $40,000 towards local charities and qualified donees to respond to the impacts of COVID-19. There will be one grant of $20,000 available plus a combination of $10,000 and $5,000 grants. Read the application guide and apply here
