Community Investment Fund: Selection process
As communities and citizens grow and change, so too do their needs. Each year, projects within this plan are reassessed and reprioritized as required to ensure they reflect the current needs of communities.
This year’s plans showcase projects made possible by the community investment fund. This fund was created by Council in July 2011 and will see $252 million spent on community improvements from 2012 to 2016. While the creation of this fund is a significant first step in addressing ever-growing community capital needs and is already making a difference to neighbourhoods, commitment of new funds are required to close the large remaining gap in unfunded projects.
By further securing the sustainability and availability of funds, The City is giving communities the opportunity to make tangible and meaningful improvements in the daily lives of citizens.
