Build a better neighbourhood

Building a better neighbourhood starts with the very simple step of getting to know people in your community. How can you do this?

  • Invite people over for a barbeque
  • Go next door with your shovel or snow-blower after a big snowfall
  • Offer your expertise on a project you know someone is starting
  • Check in on the elderly couple living across the street.

Small acts of kindness can lead to big rewards as you make friends in your neighbourhood. They can also open the door for acts of kindness from your neighbours.

This section explores ways to build a better neighbourhood, from dealing with problems with neighbours to building community spirit, getting others involved and connecting with people who can help you.
