About ActivateYYC


Our Vision

ActivateYYC started as a tactical urbanism microgrant initiative by the Federation of Calgary Communities. The Federation of Calgary Communities (or ‘the Federation’ for short) aims to support volunteer-driven, tactical urbanism projects that engage the community and create meaningful changes to shared spaces. Communities and residents are invited to reimagine spaces across Calgary as places of greater activity and connectivity. Our passion to see this unfold in our City has quadrupled in the midst of the Pandemic.

Our Approach

ActivateYYC seeks to provide grants to individuals and organizations whose projects promote innovation, diversity and community. In 2021, we are seeking projects that are able to maintain AHS COVID Health and Safety guidelines while creatively including ways to bring Calgarians together. Candidates can go over our Application Package and our requirements and submit their applications either through our website or through email.
