Benny Farm

Benny Farm is one of the four key sectors in NDG. The steering committee is in the process of changing the Benny Farm map to include all the residents and partners that we work with. The new neighborhood boundary includes; Terrebonne St. on the North and Sherbrooke Street W. on the south and Madison Av.on the East and Prince of Wales Av. on the West. The Council approached various stakeholders and key actors within the community including residents and partners working in the sector in order to voice their concerns and visions for Benny Farm

 Portrait of Territory

Benny Farm is a mixture of both social, private housing and organizations. It represents a vital number of lower-cost housing units in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce. Benny is home to a variety of people from different cultural and social background, including young families, single-parent families, senior citizens and people living with disabilities.

Benny Farm Collective

Launched in March of 2008, as a partnership between the NDG Community Council and a committee of representatives from different projects in Benny (residents & employees). Benny Farm is a mixture of both social, private housing, organisations and centres with services to the population.The committee aims to create a space in which challenges and opportunities within the community are discussed in depth. The committee is constantly reaching out to more stakeholders within the community, it partners with key organizations and organizes various activities to increasingly involve the citizens of Benny Farm. Relevant connections are being made through mobilization and partnerships within the community for the purpose of developing projects that link residents and partners with services and facilities in the neighbourhood and in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce as a whole. This initiative strives to build a strong community fabric among the diverse and dynamic Benny Farm population with the eventual goal of transitioning to being self-managed by residents and partners.

The committee’s mission is to act as a catalyst of social and economic development by facilitating consultations, encouraging discussions and supporting residents and partners who have a vested interest in the Benny Farm community at large in the planning and implementation of projects and activities. As a catalyst, the committee aims to empower residents and partners within the community, by providing an initial support and creating a positive space in which they can further build a community which they envision.

Every year, the committee looks forward to plan and/or participate to these very popular activities; Chinese New Year, Skate exchanges, Sugar Shack visit, Borough meetings, Jane’s Walk, Clean-up Day, Parking Day, Halloween, Holiday events,etc.
