Empowering Youth in Celebration of Ontario’s 150th Anniversary

Published on : Thursday, February 23, 2017

Ontario logoOntario is supporting 87 community-based projects that will empower and engage the next generation of leaders, in celebration of the province’s 150th anniversary.

 

Eleanor McMahon, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport, was at City Hall in Mississauga today with MonstrARTity, which is receiving support through the Ontario150 Partnership Program for its Monster Artist Development (MAD) project. The project will pair young South Asian artists with experienced artists and music industry experts to provide mentorship, business skills, media training, and a support network. The project also includes the implementation of a collaborative marketing campaign and the creation of an online resource centre.

 

The Ontario150 Partnership Program provides youth with opportunities to actively participate in their communities in ways that reflect their creativity, cultural expression, diversity, inclusion, environmental stewardship, entrepreneurship, healthy living and civic engagement.

 

This investment is one of three Ontario150 grant programs that will promote community engagement, empower young people and contribute to economic growth. Together with the Community Celebration and Community Capital programs, these grants are funding more than 650 events, initiatives and infrastructure projects across the province to commemorate this historic milestone year.

 

Building new community partnerships for Ontario’s 150th anniversary is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
