We are pleased to inform you of the launch of IGNITE Ontario – a new provincial program designed to help organizations host celebrations and community engagement initiatives that promote the 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games.

Ontario’s investment in IGNITE Ontario is part of the province’s Promotion, Celebration and Legacy Strategy. The strategy is designed to bring the excitement and benefits of hosting the 2015 Games to Ontarians across the province.

To be eligible for IGNITE Ontario funding, initiatives must be designated by TO2015 IGNITE – a community partnership program enabling organizations to celebrate the Games and increase awareness of their initiatives. Once an initiative receives the TO2015 IGNITE designation, the organization can apply for IGNITE Ontario funding through Grants Ontario. Please make this information available to members and or/others who may be interesting in applying to the program.

IGNITE Ontario applications are due May 5, 2014 at 5 p.m. To learn more about the program and how to apply, please visit Grants Ontario.

For additional information, please call Kamaljeet Singh, Senior Program Consultant at (416) 327-3733 or email igniteontario@ontario.ca. Your Regional Advisor can also help you with any questions.
