Celebrating Ontario’s 150th Anniversary with Better Community Spaces in Ottawa-Orléans

Province Upgrading and Renovating Local Facility

Ontario is celebrating its 150th anniversary as a province by improving and renovating community spaces in Orléans delivering better facilities for families in the community.

MPP Marie-France Lalonde announced that organizations receiving support through the Ontario150 Community Capital Program include:

  • Rendez-vous des aînés Francophones d'Ottawa – $150,000
  • Just Food Farm - $246,800 (Announced on Feb. 17th, 2017)

The Ontario150 Community Capital Program, which is administered by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, will help not-for-profit organizations, municipalities and Indigenous communities renovate, repair and retrofit existing community and cultural infrastructure. This support will be used to increase accessibility, improve safety and maximize community use of public spaces.
In celebration of Ontario’s 150th anniversary, the province has also released a new recording of A Place to Stand (Ontario Song), the province's unofficial anthem. The 50-year-old song has been refreshed to instil a sense of pride and belonging for all.

Investing in local communities for Ontario's 150th anniversary is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
