Apply for a Canada Life Youth United Grant

The Canada Life Youth United Council, a partnership between Canada Life and United Way, is now accepting submissions for its fall grants cycle. Grants up to $1,000 are available for youth-led projects that address local issues related to poverty, homelessness and barriers to education in our community.

“A Canada Life Youth United grant provides a unique opportunity for youth to create the change that they want to see in their community,” says Emily Moyer, Chair of the council and English/Psychology Major at Western University.

The youth-led council is made up of 15 youth leaders between the ages of 13 and 24 who have a passion for empowering young people and improving their community.

“The Canada Life Youth United Council is a great way to support youth-led community initiatives, like ReHarvest, an initiative to eliminate food wastage,” continues Moyer. “I love seeing the proposals and playing a part in supporting these innovative community projects.”
