NDG Space Coalition

Following a series of needs assessments and visioning exercises, an NDG Community Space Coalition was formed in December 2009 representing more than a dozen NDG community groups. In 2011-2012, the NDG Community Council accepted the coordination role for this Coalition. The main task of the Coalition that year had been to compile detailed information about the needs and opportunities that exist with regard to space for community organizations in our neighborhood in order to build a strong case that can be brought to funders and various levels of government. In the Fall of 2012, the Coalition started collaboration with the CDEC for a social economy project that would look at potential spaces in NDG and the feasibility of buying a building and transforming it so it could host several of the groups actively looking for space at the moment. Aside from this major project, the Coalition continues to look for opportunities and represent the members and their needs in the community. Connected to this work, The Council has participated on the Borough committee overseeing the revitalization of three NDG facilities : Centre Le Manoir, Notre-Dame-de-Grâce Community Centre and Notre-Dame-de-Grâce indoor swimming pool. The Council's role is to ensure the linking between the needs of the Space Coalition and community organisations in NDG and the issues been discussed at this committee.

1. Ensure that every community organization in NDG has an affordable and adequate space for their work, and ensure that these shared spaces are universally accessible for all.

2. Regenerate a healthy urban environment by ensuring that the design and construction of all community spaces is carried out according to green building principles and practices.

3. Inspire creativity and collective learning through the day-to-day information sharing and cross-pollination that happens naturally when organizations share spaces and resources.

4. Develop a model that will enable organizations to engage in long-term, holistic work without worrying about the stability of their physical spaces.
