Community Investment Opportunities

At Mosaic, we understand that the sustainability of our business and our communities are strongly linked. We strive to be a thoughtful and engaged neighbor who invests carefully and generously, and, through working with First Nations and Métis communities, identify strategic opportunities to target grant funding to initiatives and projects that are important to the growth and sustainability in the areas where we operate.

Grant Funding Focus Areas
