Ontario Trillium Foundation

Read the 2016 Ontario Regional Reports

The Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) is an agency of the Government of Ontario, and one of Canada's largest granting foundations. Every year, more than 3,000 applications are received, and over $136 million in grants are awarded to more than 1,000 community organizations. This means OTF will invest more than $1 billion in Ontario’s public benefit sector over the next decade, creating significant opportunities for positive community change.

OTF has identified the most important changes they think need to happen in Ontario over the next decade for communities to be healthier and more vibrant. They are using CIW metrics to help to gauge the cumulative impact of their investments.
