You Count: connecting Renfrew-Collingwood neighbours block-by-block

You Count

We all have gifts and passions, You Count is a way to connect with each other in informal, fun, and caring ways. By connecting on our own street, apartment, or other local spaces, we can reduce isolation and build an inclusive and welcoming neighbourhood for all. Volunteers of different ages, backgrounds, and abilities connect block-by-block to identify and share the skills, talents, and interests of our Renfrew-Collingwood neighbours. You Count experiments with different ways to connect, such as organizing block parties and learning about emergency preparedness with your neighbours. If you are interested in getting to better know the neighbours on your street, block or building based on the richness of skills and interests they have to offer, contact Lisa at or Crecien at
