“Imagine 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.” ~ The Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada

Smart & Caring Communities is a landmark effort that is bringing Canada’s community foundation movement together in response to the Governor General’s call for all Canadians to build a ‘smart and caring nation’ leading up to 2017. Visit this video to hear Community Foundation Patron, Governor General David Johnson, call us to have all communities connected through Community Foundations.

Collectively we are working to ensure that every community has access to a community foundation by 2017, and that communities across the country have access to dedicated resources through Smart & Caring Community Funds established specifically to respond to local priorities.
