Generate Opportunities (GO) Fund

The Peace Region features a strong social network of non-profit community service providers that work collaboratively to deliver programs and services to those in need. As part of the Site C project, BC Hydro is working with communities to provide lasting benefits for residents of the Peace Region.

In 2016, BC Hydro launched the Generate Opportunities (GO) Fund, an $800,000 fund to support Peace Region non-profit organizations. The GO Fund will be distributed over an eight-year period to organizations that provide services to vulnerable populations including children, families and seniors.

The GO Fund is administered by Northern Development Initiative Trust on behalf of BC Hydro. Applications for funding are accepted on an ongoing basis and funds are distributed on a quarterly basis. To apply, visit the Northern Development Initiative Trust website.

To date, $266,645 has been distributed to 29 projects.
