Block Parties & Block Buddies

The purpose of the Block Buddy and Block Party programs are to build connections and relationships between neighbours living on the same street. 

A community's most valuable resources are its people, and the Town supports the Block Buddy and Block Party programs through planning, operations and permitting support.

Block Buddies

Block Buddies connect with their neighbours, welcome new residents to the neighbourhood and help increase a sense of belonging in the community. Let us connect you with a Block Buddy in your area, or consider becoming one! It's a great way to meet your new neighbours. Training and support provided.

Stay tuned for upcoming Block Buddy training opportunities!
