IMAGINE grants provide funding to community organizations, service agencies, Indigenous organizations, schools, municipalities, regional districts, and other partners with projects that support northerners in their efforts to stay healthy.
Applications are being accepted from November 1st to November 30th, 2017. Projects should aim to prevent chronic disease and injury or promote health in one or more of the following areas:
- Healthy eating and food security
- Physical activity and active living
- Injury prevention
- Tobacco-free communities
- Positive mental health

Applicants can apply for funding of up to $5,000 for their project.
