U of T Scarborough Canada150 Fund

In honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary, the U of T Scarborough Canada150 Fund promotes greater public engagement with the University by supporting unique, one-time projects that reflect on the past, present and future of our campus; that offer critical reflection on Canadian history; and that demonstrate U of T Scarborough’s role in the Canada that is becoming. In the spirit of truth and reconciliation, special consideration is given to proposals that address Indigenous concerns.
