We foster partnerships between residents, community partners and key players to identify and address needs and emerging issues in order to cultivate strategy and solutions. As allies, we exist for the community as a whole while supporting and strengthening the most vulnerable and isolated.

The NDG Community Council is a not-for-profit organization started in 1942 that acts to promote, improve and sustain the well-being of the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce community and its residents.

The Council brings together and mobilises various actors especially in the priority sectors ( Walkley-Fielding , Westhaven, Saint Raymond and Benny Farm-Sherbrooke Forest) . As well as  involves residents in a concerted effort to identify community needs, to set priorities for action, as well as ensures implementation and follow-up.
