Today, the Deep River & District Community Foundation is pleased to announce $48,728.00 in funding to support 1 project in the Deep River, Laurentian Hills, Head, Clara, and Maria, and Rapides des Joachims area through the Government of Canada’s Community Services Recovery Fund. The Community Services Recovery Fund is a one-time investment of $400 million to help community service organizations (charities, non-profits, Indigenous governing bodies) adapt, modernize and be better equipped to improve the efficacy, accessibility and sustainability of the community services that they provide through the pandemic recovery and beyond.
The following project is being supported in our North Renfrew County area:
$48,728.00 was invested to fund The Deep River & District Hospital Foundation to support their Resilience Through Relationships Project - The goal of this project is to shift our organizational strategy towards a focus on relationship-based fundraising and provide the necessary resources to put this plan into action. By moving away from a transactional approach and building stronger relationships, our organization will become more resilient and effective.
Community service organizations are at the forefront of addressing communities’ needs. Since the early phases of the COVID-19 pandemic, they have struggled with increased demand for their services, reduced revenues, declines in charitable giving due to the rising cost of living, and a greater need to make use of digital tools. Many organizations are struggling to recover and adapt their services to the changing needs of Deep River and their Communities.
“Community service organizations are at the heart of communities like Deep River & District, creating a sense of belonging from coast to coast to coast. The Community Services Recovery Fund will enable organizations that serve our diverse communities to adapt and modernize their programs and services and to invest in the future of their organizations, staff and volunteers. Together, we can rebuild from the isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic and build a more just and equitable future for those in Deep River, Laurentian Hills, Head, Clara, and Maria, and Rapides des Joachims areas.”
– Jenna Sudds, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development

The Community Services Recovery Fund is a one-time investment of $400 million by the Government of Canada to help Community Service Organizations, charities, non-profits and Indigenous governing bodies located in Canada.
Now more than ever, community service organizations play a key role in addressing complex social problems faced by many communities across Canada.
From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, community service organizations across Canada have shown impressive stamina and creativity in their response to the diverse and increasingly challenging needs of their communities.
The Community Services Recovery Fund responds to what community service organizations need right now and supports them as they adapt to the long-term impacts of the pandemic.
As community service organizations across Canada work to support recovery in their communities, the CSRF will help them adapt and modernize their operations to grow their impact.
The Government of Canada is delivering the CSRF through three National Funders (Canadian Red Cross, Community Foundations of Canada, United Way Centraide Canada). The National Funders are distributing funding to eligible community service organizations, including charities, non-profits, and Indigenous governing bodies, providing services in communities across Canada.
The Government of Canada supports a more inclusive model of economic growth, one that creates opportunities for everyone in Canada, as the long-term recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
