Small Capital Sponsorship Program

We support small capital projects that focus on benefiting the community at large.

Charitable and non-profit organizations are encouraged to apply with projects that:

 Aim at economic or sustainable growth.

 Support a healthy lifestyle through physical activity, nutrition and wellness.

 Increase community access and participation in arts, culture and heritage.

 Support youth.

 Focus on the well-being of animals, including pets.

Your community project could receive up to $25,000 from the Small Capital Sponsorship Program.

Sponsorship funds cover up to 50% of the total project cost, starting at $2,500 (minimum) up to $25,000 (maximum).


A small capital project is considered to be:

 A new construction, expansion, renovation, or replacement project for an existing facility or facilities. The project must have a total cost of at least $5,000 and not more than $250,000 over the life of the project. Project costs can include the cost of land, engineering, architectural planning, and contract services needed to complete the project, e.g. community club, skating rink, swimming pool, additions or upgrades to an existing facility.

 The purchase of major equipment (assets) costing at least $5,000 and not more than $250,000 with a useful life of at least five years, e.g. ice resurfacer, commercial freezer/stove/refrigerator.

 A major maintenance or rehabilitation project for existing facilities with a cost of at least $5,000 and not more than $250,000 with a useful life of at least five years, e.g. a new roof for a building, flooring in a community centre, or repair of water damage to a facility.

Any organization that has been approved for Small Capital Sponsorship must wait three (3) years before re-applying for another project.
