Emergency Community Support Fund


Vulnerable populations across Canada continue to be disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Marginalized groups, youth, children and the elderly, essential workers, and newcomers are just some of the communities that are facing increased challenges right now. Launched on May 19, 2020, the Government of Canada’s new Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) aims to provide additional and much-needed assistance to charities and non-profit organizations serving vulnerable populations.

Nakusp & Area Community foundation has $40,000 to give out to Nakusp and Area. The coverage area is from Trout Lake, down to Nakusp, over to Edgwood and down to Summit Lake.

Organizations can apply starting on May 19, 2020. They must be a qualified donee (have a charitable status number) and fit the criteria posted on the CFC (Community Foundations of Canada) website.
