Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF)

The Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) is a $350 million emergency funding program from the Government of Canada.

In collaboration with the Canadian Red Cross and United Way Centraide Canada, the Thunder Bay Community Foundation is proud to be involved in the allocation of funding. The fund is designed to help Canada’s most vulnerable populations during the COVID-19 crisis. The global pandemic has left no community untouched, and it is having a disproportionate impact on vulnerable Canadians who are less equipped to deal with its health, social and economic impacts.

ECSF will provide a much-needed boost to organizations on the frontlines, while we also continue our efforts to secure the funding and support required for the stabilization and recovery phases ahead.

The application period for CFC’s ECSF funding stream is now open.
