OPEN FOR APPLICATIONS DECEMBER 1ST 2017 TO JANUARY 31ST 2018
THORNHILL - “All Canadian communities reserve the right to freely practice their faith, culture and activities peacefully. I also believe that the Government of Canada has a role to play in ensuring that communities are equipped with resources to protect themselves from crimes, especially those that are hate-motivated.”
Today, I am pleased to once again remind constituents about the Communities at Risk: Security Infrastructure Program (SIP) now accepting applications from December 1st to January 31st.
Funding is available to not-for-profit organizations that are at risk of being victimized by hate-motivated crime. It helps with the costs of security infrastructure improvements for places of worship, provincially and territorially recognized private educational institutions, and community centers.
This funding has helped to provide security infrastructure to many organizations over the past years. I am also pleased to convey to you that a wide range of costs will now be considered eligible, allowing communities to implement security measures both inside and outside of their facilities.
As your Member of Parliament, I encourage you to seize the opportunity to keep Thornhill safe for individuals and families.
Communities at Risk: Security Infrastructure Program (SIP) is administered by the Government of Canada.
