Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF)

On April 21, 2020, the Prime Minister announced a Community Support Fund that the Government of Canada is providing to strengthen the capacity of community services to meet the urgent needs of vulnerable individuals and families affected by COVID-19. This Fund is being distributed through an agreement between the Government and United Way Centraide Canada (UWCC), Community Foundations of Canada and the Canadian Red Cross. 

Through this agreement United Way Greater Toronto will be distributing $11M to community services in Peel Region, the City of Toronto and York Region.
