Community Works Fund

CWF is based on a per capita formula with a funding floor, and delivered twice annually. Local governments make local choices about which eligible projects to fund and report annually on these projects and their outcomes. The Community Works fund allocation table outlines expected payments for 2019-2024.

    The CWF program will deliver an estimated $1.3 billion over ten years to local governments.

    Annual Expenditure Reporting

    Eligible Recipients who received funding through the Community Works Fund, the Greater Vancouver Regional Fund and/or have approved projects through a pooled fund program stream (SPF/IF/RSP/GSPF) are required to complete an Annual Expenditure Report describing Canada Community-Building Fund expenditures between January 1st and December 31st of the previous year. Reporting is available through the Program Information Management System (PIMS). The deadline for submitting the 2020 Annual Expenditure Report was June 1, 2021. At the end of each reporting year, UBCM produces a complete list of CWF projects, as reported by Local Governments for the previous year. You can view a complete list of CWF projects as reported by Local Governments between January 1, 2019 - December 31, 2019.
