The Centre for Connected Communities:

Connects community builders with ideas, knowledge, research, tools and each other

Translates knowledge across sectors

Celebrates and elevates the work of community building as some of the most important work in our society

So that communities can find collective solutions to complex social issues

We acknowledge the Anishinabek (Ojibway) Mashkegowick, (Cree) and Hodenashoone (Mohawk confederacy) as the guardians and traditional keepers of the land on which the people of East Scarborough live work and play.

We recognize the Mississaugas of New Credit First Nation as the current holders of these traditional territories. We at the Centre for Connected Communities recognize the injustice of colonization and, in all our work, strive for equity and justice for all people.
