Aviva Community Fund voting – BPS finish first in Category


The Brockville Police would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for our After School Program bid for the Aviva Community Fund grant. In the voting, the Brockville Police Services after School Program finished 2nd in all of Canada and 1st in our category of Community Development.


The 15 ideas that receive the most votes in each of the two funding levels in the Community Development, Community Health and Community Resilience categories plus the 5 ideas that receive the most votes in the Community Legacy category and the idea with the highest Aviva broker partner votes (Top Ranked Broker-Supported idea) will become Finalists.

The 35 Finalists are then evaluated by an independent panel of judges who choose the Grand Prize Winners. Grand Prize Winners receive up to $100,000 (if entered into the large level of funding), up to $50,000 (if entered into the small level of funding) and $150,000 (if entered into the Community Legacy category). Finalists that do not become Grand Prize Winners will receive a $5,000 donation to a charity of their choice.

Finalists are to be announced on November 1st.
