Neighbourhood Programs

Good Neighbour

Neighbourhoods are more than houses, streets and boulevards — it’s the people who live in those neighbourhoods that make them dynamic and unique.

If you have neighbours who make your neighbourhood the place to be, let them know their contributions matter and nominate them as a Good Neighbour!


Neighbourhood Connectors

What is a Neighbourhood Connector?

Neighbourhood Connectors are local volunteers who take pride in their communities and connect neighbours to one another through block events and conversations. When neighbours feel connected to one another their friendships can have a significant impact on the quality of life in their neighbourhood including an increased sense of belonging, better mental health, and increased safety.

Why should I Volunteer?

Neighbourhood Connectors are residents who enjoy getting to know their neighbours, like hosting block events and may have ideas on how to improve their neighbourhood, but need a bit of help getting started. If this sounds like you, the Neighbourhood Connector Program can help you with additional resources and ideas to make your neighbourhood one of the best places to live and play!

What would I need to do?

As a Neighbourhood Connector you will have support from the Community Social Planning Coordinator in getting to know your neighbours and resources to help you host block events and implement any innovative community building ideas you may have. Neighbourhood Connectors will also:

  1. Connect with every neighbour on their block and providing information on the Neighbourhood Connector role.
  2. Host a block event at least once per year.
  3. Access the Shape Your Community Grant to help implement neighbour ideas and improve the neighbourhood.
  4. Nominate anyone on your block who makes your neighbourhood a great place to live for the Good Neighbour award!
