Towards 2017

Join us in imagining what can happen when we invest in the energy and imagination of our young adults. In May 2015, the Banff Canmore Community Foundation teamed up with partners from across the nation to help spark the imaginations of Canada’s 18 to 30 year-olds with Elevate 150.

In 2017 we are anxious to watch how this cohort of young leaders will be sparking action across the nation with projects inspired by their time in Banff. The foundation, as well as the Community Foundations of Canada’s CEO Ian Bird, are committed to fanning those sparks into flames of change and you are invited to join the celebration.

By linking hands with our community foundation partners and young friends across the country the Alliance 150 movement will harness the power of passionate Canadians ready to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial. From a spark to a flame – communities can create a ripple effect that is smart, kind, and caring.
