The CBT is a member of the Community Foundations of Canada in 2012. As the region’s community foundation, the CBT works with individuals and organizations to build a region where all residents can succeed, contribute and develop their talents to their fullest potential.
The CBT has an annual Call for Projects where communities, educational institutions and registered charities are invited to submit proposals for funding. The CBT funds a wide variety of projects in four categories: Culture and Events, Youth and Education, Community Development, and Research and Environment.
The CBT produces Vital Signs, a biennial “community check-up,” that measures the vitality of our communities, identifies significant trends and supports action on issues that are critical to our quality of life. You can find the most recent report at: clayoquotbiosphere.org/web/vital-signs/
