The Light a Candle for Canada fundraising campaign is now closed. Thank you to those who made donations.
The projects funded through this campaign are:
Canada 150 Tree Planting
Help to grow the urban forest canopy! Community volunteers will work with the City to plant trees in the fall of 2017, including Canada 150 commemorative trees. And having commemorative maple trees as part of our urban forest is a very fitting gift for Canada 150! Park sites and dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
Paint the Rails
The Paint the Rails project will turn Edmonton’s LRT stations into works of art that express the histories of Canada and Edmonton. This initiative will bring a diverse range of artists together from different cultural backgrounds to collaborate on a project that transforms and beautifies our spaces while increasing awareness on reconciliation and history. Paint the Rails project partners include Edmonton Transit, local artists, Treaty 6, the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights, and Edmonton Heritage Council.
