The Community Services Recovery Fund is a one-time $400 million investment from the Government of Canada to support community service organizations, including charities, non-profits and Indigenous governing bodies, as they adapt and modernize their organizations. The Government of Canada is delivering the Community Services Recovery Fund through three National Funders – Canadian Red Cross, Community Foundations of Canada, and United Way Centraide Canada. The National Funders distribute funding to community service organizations providing services in communities across Canada.
"I am continually impressed by the passion, dedication, and creativity of community service organizations, like the Vancouver Basketball Foundation. I am equally proud the Government of Canada has supported their important work through the Community Services Recovery Fund. By investing in these organizations and their projects we can help to create a more just and equitable society, where everyone has opportunities to succeed. I look forward to seeing the positive impact of this investment in Vancouver over the years to come."
- Jenna Sudds, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development
