Kia Communities in Motion

Communities in Motion is an initiative of Kia Canada, in partnership with Community Foundations of Canada. Starting in 2022, Kia will invest $1.4 million over 4 years in grass-roots projects that will help build safe and inclusive communities across the country. 

We were one of five community foundations chosen to deliver the Communities in Motion program in 2022. Nine projects were funded, including two from our region. You can read the story of South Okanagan Immigrant & Community Services’ Moving Ahead project below.

Images of all nine funded projects in 2022, including the second grantee from our region, PACE Penticton’s Rusty Springs Mattress Recycling Program, can be found here.
