Welcoming Neighbourhoods

Welcoming Neighbourhoods is a way to build a culture of community connection, one neighbourly conversation at a time.

Help make your neighbourhood a place where people know and help each other, celebrate together, and work as a team to make your community a better place to live.

We can help you build strong neighbourhoods where:

  • Residents feel more connected to their neighbourhoods
  • Residents feel safe and more connected to neighbours on their block and in their neighbourhood
  • Residents get involved in their neighbourhood activities
  • Residents foster an environment of care for one another
  1. Get Involved
  2. City Programs
  3. Good Neighbours
  4. Neighbourhood Resources

If you’ve moved to a new neighbourhood or looking for opportunities to get more involved, here are some ways to get started:

  • Say "hi" to your neighbours and introduce yourself.
  • Search the Internet to see if your neighbourhood has any active groups or a Facebook page to join.
  • Visit your local library to see if there are any activities going on in your neighbourhood.
  • Volunteer for a local organization or cause you feel strongly about. Volunteering is a great way to meet others with similar interests and make your community a better place.
  • Plan a group activity such as a block party, yard sale or donation drive. Talk to your neighbours or circulate flyers to get other involved.
  • See if there is something you can start up like a neighbourhood association, Facebook page, babysitting co-op etc. The possibilities are endless.
