Community Programs

We are dedicated to creating a healthy, connected and inspired neighbourhood where all community members thrive, learn and have a place to contribute. We practice interculturalism, which means understanding and respecting cultural differences, finding commonalities and working together to create something new. If you live in Renfrew-Collingwood and have ideas on how to improve your community or are passionate about community issues, we can help with:

  • – Information on local opportunities and initiatives
  • – Links to neighbours who may share your interests
  • – Intercultural leadership and skill development opportunities
  • – Support and assistance with community resources¬†
