This week, the Ontario government announced a new round of funding for the grant that benefits community-based, non-profit organizations’ security needs. The Ontario Grant to Support Anti-Hate Security Measures for Faith-Based and Community Organizations is a direct response to our community’s advocacy efforts. The program will provide up to $10,000 for security infrastructure and training for eligible institutions such as shuls and community centres.
