Community Well-Being

The Community Well-Being Project is now closed and will not be offering this program in 2021. 

The Community Well-Being Program was developed in 2018 through programs offered by the Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) when Huron-Kinloss was in the site-selection process and learning more about Canada's Long Term Plan for Used Nuclear Fuel.
The Township of Huron-Kinloss invested $300,000 into the community through grants related to:
  • arts, culture and heritage
  • sports and recreation
  • social and health
  • environmental and other
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2020 Community Well-Being Program. We are happy to share a few of the successful project photos. 

Photo Gallery: 2020 Community Well-Being will appear here on the public site.
