3,5 millions de dollars accordés à 60 communautés dans le cadre du programme My Main Street Community Activator

The My Main Street Community Activator program, delivered by the Canadian Urban Institute (CUI), is pleased to announce $3.5 million in funding toward local placemaking projects in 60 communities across southern Ontario. My Main Street is a two-year, $23.25-million investment by the Government of Canada through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario), delivered by CUI and the Economic Developers Council of Ontario (EDCO).

My Main Street Community Activator supports projects that revitalize local neighbourhoods and drive economic activity by transforming public spaces and supporting vibrant event programming. The projects will attract visitors and increase foot traffic for main street shops, restaurants and local businesses.

My Main Street Community Activator prioritizes projects that serve areas with commercial and community importance, and that reduce the barriers to economic and social opportunities for equity-seeking groups.

All My Main Street Community Activator programs are free, accessible and open to people of all ages.

Here is a list of the exciting projects that are coming to a main street near you!
