Administered by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Ontario150 Community Capital Program grants help to non-profit organizations, municipalities and Indigenous communities to renovate, repair and retrofit existing community and cultural infrastructure.
An agency of the Government of Ontario, the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) is one of Canada’s largest granting foundations. With a budget of over $136 million, OTF awards grants to some 1,000 projects every year to build healthy and vibrant Ontario communities.

Committee of Adjustment
The Committee of Adjustment of the Township of Mulmur mandate:
This committee is charged with interpreting the official plan and zoning bylaws with regard to land division or minor variance requests. Land division could involve the creation of a new lot, re-alignment of property boundaries, or long term easements. Minor variances arise where a property owner cannot meet the requirements of the zoning by-law, for example, when a structure is planned to be placed too close to a property line.
