    It is the largest grant to be awarded by the Trillium Foundation to an organization or event.

    The Ontario Trillium Foundation, an agency of the Ministry of Culture, receives annually $100
    million of government funding generated through Ontario's charity casino initiative. Ontario

    The Hamilton 2003 Festival will present a series of arts, cultural and entertainment events that
    will provide a great opportunity for community involvement with the World Cycling Championships. The

    will be comprised of events created and managed by the Festival Committee and the second element
