Note: Due to a high volume of requests, we are no longer accepting neighbourhood grants or event applications for Canada Day events.

Why plan a neighbourhood event?

  • Get to know who is in your neighbourhood
  • Encourage neighbourliness and have fun with your neighbours
  • Neighbourhood gatherings provide opportunities for neighbours to meet and strengthen existing relationships
  • Increasing the number of neighbourhood events in your community creates more opportunities for people to connect

Some examples of neighbourhood events:

  • Block party, neighbourhood picnic, themed gatherings
  • Neighbourhood park/stream clean-up, neighbourhood spruce-up
  • Free-cycling days
  • Seed exchange
  • Porch concert, sidewalk chalk mural, art jam
