Knowing your neighbours is a great way to create safe communities where we look out for one another.


We encourage you to get to know your neighbours at any time of year, whether it's through a friendly knock at the door with an invite for tea, a phone call, a message of support, an offer to help in the garden or by assisting with a grocery drop off.


You can connect with other residents by:

Good neighbours build great neighbourhoods. Help create a sense of belonging in an inclusive community today.
