Co-op Community Spaces

Co-ops across Western Canada are helping to create places for everyone through the Co-op Community Spaces Program.

In 2018, $2 million is available to support capital projects led by charitable and non-profit groups across Western Canada.

Co-op Community Spaces is supporting local projects dedicated to recreation, environmental conservation and urban agriculture. Funding between $25,000 and $150,000 is available per project.The program was launched in 2015 to help protect, beautify and improve local spaces. Since then, it has provided $4.5 million to 64 projects, including parks, greenhouses and sports fields. The program is administered by FCL on behalf of the CRS. Co-op invites registered non-profit organizations, registered charities or community service co-operatives to apply online at between Feb. 1 and March 1, 2018.
