About Evergreen

Sponsors & Supporters

Evergreen’s work is made possible by the generous support of corporations, foundations, government agencies and hundreds of individual Canadians.

National Title Partner

Toyota Canada Inc. and its Dealerships

For more than 12 years Toyota has partnered with Evergreen through the Toyota Evergreen Learning Grounds program to distribute more than $2.8 million in grants to over 2,350 schools and day cares across the country. With Toyota’s support, these schools have been able to implement greening projects on their grounds, impacting over one million students and 98,000 school faculty members to date—and for generations to come.
Throughout Canada, Toyota prides itself in building close, cooperative relationships with a wide spectrum of individuals and organizations involved in environmental preservation, including governments and business partners, in the many communities in which we live, work and play.

Lead Partner

Government of Ontario

Since our founding in 1991, Evergreen has partnered with various Ministries to make Ontario cities more livable. Together, we bring greenspace to cities across the province; find and share solutions to urban infrastructure and transportation challenges; and provide children, seniors and families education about sustainable local food systems. For more information see Our Stories.


HSBC Bank Canada

The Evergreen Greenspace program, sponsored by HSBC Bank Canada, gives Canadians the opportunity to participate in restoring and sustaining nature in their communities. HSBC Bank Canada, a subsidiary of HSBC Holdings plc, is the leading international bank in Canada. HSBC believes in investing in the future, which is why they contribute the majority of their charitable giving to educational and environmental organizations.

The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation

With support from the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation, Evergreen is developing a Canadian Civic Commons Strategy that aims to increase civil society, government and institutional capacity within our cities to develop and implement inclusive place-based policies and action plans to maximize the use and benefits of our nation’s under-utilized public spaces. This project supports vibrant community-led transformations of under-utilized civic assets in part by strengthening local and national networks, initiatives and community leaders and supporting on-the-ground placemaking initiatives.
