Health and Wellness Fund
The Health and Wellness Fund will support initiatives in the Capital Region which improve the quality of physical and mental health and wellness in our community and that promote good health practices and behaviour. The Fund’s purpose is to support various health and wellness initiatives that contribute to physical, emotional and mental wellbeing, such as preventing long-term chronic diseases, delivering physical literacy programs for children, improving access to mental health supports, including in-person and virtual counselling, and reducing social isolation.
