The Slaight Family Foundation Legacy Program

The Slaight Family Foundation Legacy Program was created to support veterans of the Canadian music community, as well as those who are coping with unexpected or chronic illness.

The Legacy Program is targeted at those who are finding it difficult to maintain an adequate standard of living, are in need of constant or emergent medical intervention, and those who are struggling with mental health issues.

Applicants who have been contributing to Canada’s music community for a minimum of 10 years and are over the age of 60 and/or are coping with unexpected or chronic illness are eligible.
