Great Neighbours Program

It's always a good time to be a great neighbour!

Great Neighbours is a grassroots initiative helping neighbours get to know one another better. There are many easy ways to get to know your neighbour.

  • Introduce yourself
  • Leave a treat
  • Shovel your neighbour's sidewalk, mow their lawn
  • Introduce other neighbours to each other
  • Keep an eye out on neighbourhood homes and property

Thursdays in the Park

The Great Neighbours Program is an initiative to inspire community connection. You are invited to join us each Thursday evening in July and August from 5:00 - 7:00 pm for a free hot dog BBQ and fun family activities. Every week we will be at a different park.

Please come and enjoy!
