Prior to the fi­nal re­port, a sum­mary re­port was re­leased out­lin­ing 94 calls to ac­tion, di­vided into two parts: legacy (1-42) and rec­on­cil­i­a­tion (43-94).

As noted by the Depart­ment, “the goal of the Canada 150 Fund is to cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties for Cana­di­ans to par­tic­i­pate in lo­cal, re­gional, and na­tional cel­e­bra­tions that con­trib­ute to build­ing a sense of pride and at­tach­ment to Canada.” canada.pch.gc.ca/eng/1424795454­758/1434974349­768.
