About the 150Alliance


Welcome to the 150Alliance!

We are an open network of groups, individuals and organizations, working together to make the most of Canada's sesquicentennial in 2017.

We know that the 150th anniversary of Confederation is more than just a birthday party. It's a moment to reflect, renew and regenerate. To reach across divides and make new connections. To build a national narrative that weaves together thousands of local stories.


Kickstarted by Community Foundations of Canada, the 150Alliance is promoting action, engagement and impact around Canada's 150th. Together, we can be connectors, curators and catalysts - driving sesquicentennial initiatives across Canada.

We’re inviting everyone to the table to build new networks and strengthen those that already exist. We will share knowledge, skills, and experience, both in-person and online. We will build public awareness and measure the impact of our activities so we can tell the story of what we've achieved together.

We're building the biggest database of 2017 organizations and projects in Canada. This digital platform will act as a hub for all 2017 activity, featuring a cross-Canada events calendar, ongoing storytelling, continuous newsfeeds from 150Alliance members and multiple digital working spaces where organizations can connect and collaborate.

We'll also feature an extensive library of resources to help organizations make the most of their plans for 2017.
