Celebrating 10 years of Distributing over $16 Million of Capital and Net Revenue Grants to Communities of Faith, Presbyteries and Charitable Organizations!

The Presbyteries of Toronto Conference Corporation (PTCC) was established in 2010 as a charitable Ontario Corporation with a mission to serve the Presbyteries of Toronto Conference of the United Church of Canada by making capital and net revenue grants to communities of faith and charitable organizations. After January 1, 2019, with the formation of Regional Councils, PTCC now serves the successors of the Presbyteries, namely Shining Waters Regional Council and Western Ontario Waterways Regional Council.

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of PTCC, a report has been prepared to elaborate on the grants made over these years and the projects and programs undertaken by the communities of faith, Presbyteries and charitable organizations of Toronto Conference and the Founding Presbyteries: South West, Toronto Southeast, Living Waters and Northern Waters Presbyteries.

PTCC has approved grants in total of approximately $16.48 million, for payment into 2023.
