Eleanor McMahon, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport, made the announcement today at the Brampton Multicultural Community Centre. The centre is receiving $592,000 to develop leadership skills and civic engagement among immigrant youth ages 15 to 24, and help youth get involved in addressing the challenges facing their communities, such as unemployment, navigating the education system, and the disconnects between home and school culture, values and practices.
Ontario is supporting families and communities across the province through the Ontario Trillium Foundation. This funding helps non-profit organizations deliver a broad range of community projects that make a difference in people’s lives — from preserving Indigenous languages and cultural traditions, to promoting active living and developing job skills.
Investing in local communities is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
