  • Strong Neighbourhood: To build healthy and vibrant communities by increasing equity social cohesion, and inclusion
  • Successful Aging: Improve the well-being of seniors by reducing the factors that lead to isolation and vulnerability while respecting their independence
  • Mental Health & Addictions: People experiencing mental health and / or addictions challenges have access to coordinated community-based supports
  • Crisis Supports: Ensure people in crisis have access to coordinated and immediate supports
  • Critical Hours: Engaged and Active Children and Youth
