Unsmoke Canada Cleanups is a grant-giving program established in 2020 through a partnership between The Great Outdoors Fund and #UnsmokeCanada to support litter cleanup projects anywhere in Canada.
The Great Outdoors Fund is a nonprofit dedicated to generating voluntary funding from the private sector to assist public agencies and nonprofit organizations in keeping the great outdoors healthy and open for the benefit and enjoyment of people of all ages, abilities and socio-economic backgrounds.
#UnsmokeCanada is an initiative by Rothmans, Benson & Hedges, Inc. (RBH) to help rid Canada of cigarettes by 2035. RBH is committed to encouraging and enabling society to reduce litter globally.
From city parks to national parks, we aim to help everyone work together to keep Canada’s great outdoors great!
We are excited to announce that we have selected 26 organizations to receive grants from the 2023 Unsmoke Canada Cleanups program. In all, we’re awarding nearly $115,000 in funding – the most funding yet – to help groups across Canada conduct cleanups to help keep Canada’s great outdoors great! We’re delighted with how Year 4 of this grant-giving program is starting out. We will be sharing stories from various cleanups across our social channels as they occur.
