Neighbourhood Life

We live, work, interact, learn and play in our neighbourhoods – it is where we spend most of our time and is the place we call “home.”

Residents who live in a connected neighbourhood have a greater sense of belonging which leads to feelings of safety, security and overall better health.

The City supports a coordinated approach to strengthening neighbourhoods and is involved in several initiatives that promote neighbours connecting with neighbours, as well as working together with The City and the many local agencies, associations and groups who also care about neighbourhood life.

We believe every neighbourhood is vibrant and has something to offer!

Great Neighbours

Remember a time when we used to know our neighbours? It doesn’t have to be a thing of the past.
