Ontario Trillium Foundation Turns 40!
November 17, 2022 marks OTF's 40th anniversary of supporting Ontario's non-profit sector.
Since its inception in 1982, the Ontario Trillium Foundation has funded the important work of non-profits in order to create thriving communities. The wide variety of Ontario's nonprofits plays an important role in the province's communities, influencing spheres as diverse as health, education, the arts, sporting activities, the environment, and culture.
Forty years of positive change is something to be proud of. For forty years, they have assisted non-profits in mobilizing volunteers to carry out vital service provision, job creation, and community connections.
Thanks to the Ontario government, OTF can continue to support organizations and the non-profit sector as a whole to drive lasting positive change for Ontarians!
"The work of the Ontario Trillium Foundation makes a positive, lasting difference in the lives of individuals and families across the province. Our government is proud to work with the OTF and local community partners to create a lasting legacy across Ontario. We thank them for 40 years of building stronger communities and contributing to the economic and societal growth of our province." (Neil Lumsden Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport)
We acknowledge the land on which ParaSport® Ontario was built is the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Wendat, and the Haudenosaunee peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today Toronto (also known as Tkaronto) is home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.
