Commemorate Canada

Government of Canada


The Commemorate Canada program provides funding to initiatives that commemorate and celebrate historical figures, places, events and accomplishments of national significance.
The program favours commemorations and celebrations marking 25th, 50th, 75th, 100th anniversaries and subsequent anniversaries in increments of 25 years.
For the commemoration of an individual, at least 10 years must have passed following their death.


Eligible funding recipients under Commemorate Canada include the following:

  • Canadian non-profit organizations (corporations, trusts, cooperatives, unincorporated associations, etc.);
  • Canadian business corporations, where projects are non-commercial in nature;
  • Canadian educational institutions; and
  • Canadian provincial or territorial governments, municipal governments, First Nations governments (or equivalent authorities) and other municipal, provincial or territorial institutions of Canada.


The total financial assistance received from Commemorate Canada and other levels of government (federal, provincial, territorial and municipal) cannot exceed 100% of your total project-related costs.

For grants, the maximum allowable expenses for plaques and monuments and for equipment rentals is $10,000.
