Ireland Canada Place is seeking funding from multiple sources. Governments, corporate/private donors and the general public. All will contribute to raising the funds required.
The Ireland Canada Place project has completed two phases and now enters its Phase 3 and final phase - construction of the site.
Phase 1 saw the acquisition of the site at George Wainborn Park, False Creek, Vancouver, BC and Phase 2 was completed with approval by Vancouver Park Board of the site design. The site has been given the 'Green Light' by the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil Wautath First Nations to build on their unceded land - a wonderful gesture by the West Coast Indigenous people.
We have to date raised over 30% of the required amount. To fully complete this wonderful celebratory site in this beautiful location we need to raise $250,000 by June 2023 and every dollar counts. Each of the 32 Counties of Ireland will be featured at the site. All donors will be recognized on our website.Examples of County Plaques
