TORONTO, June 14, 2016 /CNW/ - Aviva Canada is thrilled to announce that the Aviva Community Fund ("ACF") is back for the eighth year in a row. Another $1 million will be donated to create positive change in communities across Canada. 

Today, the Aviva Community Fund website launches enabling people to register for campaign updates, download the "Idea Submission Guide", and connect with ACF through social media.  The competition officially opens on September 19th, giving people ample time to prepare their submission ideas.
