Three Alberni Valley projects are vying for part of the million-dollar Aviva Community Fund pot. Although none of the three were automatically vaulted to the semi-final round, voting can still take place and make a difference in this second round of voting.

Tseshaht Canoe and Canoe Shed

Tseshaht Ahp cii uk and Tseshaht Recreation are asking for between $100,000 and $150,000 to carve a traditional 30-foot ocean going canoe and accompanying canoe shed to protect the canoe. Project proponents hope to restore the Tseshaht First Nation’s historic tradition of journeying in a cedar canoe, further connecting its people to its story of creation in the Broken Group.

To vote for the Tseshaht canoe and canoe shed project, please go online to www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf11193.

Help Rebuild Weaver Park

When volunteers wanting to revitalize their neighbourhood park were told the city could not afford to clean it up and buy a new playground, the volunteers started looking for funding sources. They were awarded a Let Them Be Kids matching funds grant of $35,000, and are listed in the medium ($50,000–$100,000) category for the Aviva Fund.

To vote for the Weaver Park project, please go online to www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf11135.

Port Alberni Feline Spay/ Neuter/ Vaccination program

This program is asking for between $100,000 and $150,000 to support the Port Alberni SPCA’s spay/ neuter and vaccination program.

To vote for this SPCA program, please go online to www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf12336.
