2017 was a hallmark year, with Canada 150 sparking a year-long celebration with events across the country. For TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF), it was also the launch of TD Common Ground Project — an initiative that focused on revitalizing over 150 green spaces across the country in recognition of Canada’s 150th birthday.

Through #TDCommonGround, TD FEF funded over 280 environmental grassroots projects, from park revitalizations and  bioblitzes, to pollinator gardens and natural playgrounds. Our green spaces are where we all meet to connect, relax and play; they are where we find common ground. With generous support from our donors and community organizations, we helped created a legacy of healthy, vibrant and inclusive green spaces in communities.

In addition to #TDCommonGround, we were thrilled to work with hundreds of community organizations and support more than 600 environmental projects throughout the year.
