Canadian non-profits, registered charities, and business improvement areas continue to be invited to submit their projects here to be considered for support. All applicants will receive a confirmation email once the Tweed Collective has received the application. We will review applications and respond within 45 days of the closing of the submission window, which is now February 20, 2020. Grants are offered to charitable organizations who have big ideas on how to make their communities a better place for everyone. To be considered for support, organizations must be working towards one of Tweed Collective’s three impact pillars which are:

  • Grow Opportunities: Local communities prosper when residents have access to opportunity. We invest in projects and programs that develop and enhance skills to help more Canadians find their path to prosperity. 
  • Grow Greener: Greening and cleaning initiatives help build our understanding of the planet and the role that we play in sustainability. We fund projects that bring people together to learn, act and share to create a greener future for all. 
  • Grow Connections: A sense of belonging brings purpose to our lives and is key to building vibrant communities. We support programs and projects that encourage connectivity through shared interests, improved accessibility, and the creation of welcoming public spaces.

Through Tweed Collective, Canopy Growth is giving back while also building awareness, understanding and valued relationships with stakeholders, partners, and customers while being mindful of the Company’s role in society and as a community member and neighbour.
