Stratford Perth Caring Communities

Smart & Caring Communities

As patron of Community Foundations of Canada, the Governor General of Canada has asked community foundations to join his call to all Canadians to build a ‘smart and caring nation’ leading up to 2017. His vision inspired and motivated our movement and Smart & Caring Communities is our response.

"Join me in imagining our country as it could be...a smart and caring nation, where all Canadians can succeed, contribute, and develop their talents to their fullest potential."
Governor General of Canada, David Johnston

Smart & Caring Communities is a landmark effort that brings our movement together around two goals: first, to ensure that every community has access to a community foundation by 2017 and second, that communities across the country have access to dedicated resources through Smart & Caring Community Funds established specifically to respond to local priorities.
