Collingwood Neighbourhood House

“We want to give people a sense of belonging. And that includes friendships, that includes a place to go where people know your name and a place to go where you feel you have something to contribute.” -Jennifer Gray-Grant, Collingwood Neighbourhood House Executive Director


Collingwood Neighbourhood House began “as an idea at a kitchen table” and was established in the late 1980s. With a mission to build community and develop relationships between neighbours, the Neighbourhood House provides everything from childcare and recreation programs to settlement services and celebrations for an extremely diverse intercultural community, while providing residents with opportunities to come together to improve the community.
