This picture captures a significant moment for Metcalf — not only were we celebrating the 2021 Johannas winners, but it was the first time we had the pleasure of hosting people since COVID altered our lives.

It was an inspiring evening at the Art Gallery of Ontario, as the arts community gathered to honour 10 remarkable artists selected from across Ontario. There was a feeling of joy at being able to gather again, and deep gratitude for the efforts of artists who have given us moments of light through this dark time.

The last few months have been busy at Metcalf. This spring we approved $2.3 million in grants from our Opportunities Fund — the Inclusive Local Economies program’s largest disbursement of grants in one round.

We have also launched the guidelines for the next round of funding for Carbon Landscapes in our Environment program. A significant portion of the program’s funding is now supporting the planning and establishment of Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas (IPCAs), and we have included a short piece on IPCAs to explain what they are.

In early May, we welcomed the newest member of our team, Jorge Garza, who joins Metcalf as our Program Officer. We are delighted to have Jorge on board and I know he is looking forward to meeting many of you in the months ahead.

Finally, we just finished our 2020-2021 Biennial Report, which we will be releasing later this month. The report covers an extraordinary period at Metcalf — and in all of our lives. We are eager to share some of the insights and questions this extraordinary experience has raised for us.

As always, I welcome your thoughts.

The Metcalf Foundation office is located on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples. Today, the meeting place of "Tkaronto" (Toronto) continues to be home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to work together on this land.
