Community Services COVID-19 Relief Fund Petition

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Friendship Centres – along with Canada’s essential network of community service providers – have continued to provide critical supports to our most vulnerable communities, but right now we recognize that many organizations are struggling!

 
The COVID-19 pandemic has been particularly devastating to Indigenous peoples and communities who rely on Friendship Centres as community-driven, culturally relevant, and safer spaces within towns and cities across Canada.
 



That’s why the National Association of Friendship Centres, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada, BGC Canada, United Way Centraide Canada, YMCA Canada and YWCA Canada have come together to call on the federal government to establish a Community Services COVID-19 Relief Fund.
 
The Community Services COVID-19 Relief Fund seeks to provide a temporary 18-month bridge funding to support the ongoing work of organizations providing front-line human and community services during the pandemic, including independent community organizations led by, serving and focused on communities in vulnerable circumstances, such as Black, Indigenous and people of colour led organizations and women’s organizations.
