Community Activities

Our Community Development program supports community based groups and organizations, engagement in social action, and the identification of community needs and future project development.

Community Development

The activities in the community development program at the LCRC are consistent with the principles of:

  • Support for empowerment
  • Listening to the community
  • Transformational practice
  • Partnership and collaboration

These four principles form the basis of community development work and translate into various activities carried out by the Lowertown Community Resource Centre for the benefit of the Lowertown residents and which meet their priority needs.

Contact Mirfat, our Community Development Coordinator if you have any questions or require more information. She is ready to meet with any and all residents to share on ideas for initiatives that they would like to carry out in our neighborhood. You can reach her at: and 613-789-3930, ext: 314

Community Gardens

Beginning each spring, people interested in gardening come together to work in the community gardens. From planting to harvesting, the people meet and work together to do the tasks needed in order to get a bountiful garden.

Income Tax Clinics

Every year, every Monday night from February to April, the LCRC offers income tax clinics where low-income people can have their tax forms filled by volunteers free of charge.
