Spotlight on new funding

The Trustees of the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation approved funding for two organizations:


School Mental Health ASSIST ($300,000)

A grant to School Mental Health ASSIST will be used to share lessons from its evidence-based implementation science model across Canada and to build teach capacity in Ontario schools to promote mental health in their everyday practices.


Northern Manitoba Food, Culture & Community Collaborative ($500,000)

The Northern Manitoba Food, Culture and Community Collaborative (NMFCCC) will use the funds to further develop projects and share approaches, including social enterprise, that focus on improving food security and building resilient local food economies in Northern Manitoba.
