Dear Members and supporters,
The NDG Community Council invites you to attend a new series of 5@7 events. We would like to meet our members, partners and supporters to get to know you better and get your feedback about our work.
We received positive feedback about our last 5@7, so we decided to continue organizing these events. It will be a good opportunity for you to learn about our current and future programs, initiatives and projects.

We hope to see you at one of these events. If you require further information, please do not hesitate to contact us at 514 484 1471 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear members , partners and supporters ,
Since its creation , the Council has been a pillar in this community, able to meet the needs of our most vulnerable residents thanks to our dedicated members, supporters, funders , institutions and elected officials.
Despite what we went through in 2020 and 2021 from isolation, confinement and above all sickness, we were able to slowly go back to our normal working habits. Our staff and community meetings moved from online to in person. We continue to have some hybrid meetings to offer opportunity for more participation and ensure health safety for all .
The Council, as usual, came out from this crisis stronger and more resilient. We had another busy year full of initiatives and accomplishments, thanks to the dedicated team, Board of directors, volunteers, members and the collaborative environment among organisations in NDG. Above all, we are thankful to be part of a mobilized supportive community full of initiatives and mutual support.
Our team continues to work to bring together the different stakeholders to ensure a better quality of life for our most vulnerable. It is a long list , these are some highlights :
Supporting different resident led initiatives such as the NDG Art Hive , the Porch fest and Community Christmas dinner
Collaborate on projects such as Papa et Moi with Wakley and St Raymond Centers
Continue our Tax clinic all year round and provide training and volunteering opportunities
Create a space for partners to provide services such as Bonhomme à Lunette and a Dental Clinic
Our office is a hub for groups , we welcome anyone who needs a space to work or to meet
Creating several conversation groups ( French , English and Spanish ), a friendly space to chat while learning or practicing a language
Support families and individuals in their applications for government benefits and provide workshops
Build new cohorts of community connectors
Teach technology tor seniors
Grab any opportunity to celebrate and break isolation ( Halloween , Cabane à sucre, etc)
December Together is back for its 3rd edition but will be moving to be in person in collaboration with many partners .. stay tuned
