Ways to get involved in your neighbourhood

There are lots of ways to make a positive impact on your neighbourhood! Here are a few ideas: 

  • contact your local neighbourhood association to see if they’re looking for volunteers
  • connect with your neighbours from home and start planning a neighbourhood project with the help of a LoveMyHood neighbourhood liaison
  • organize an activity to get to know your neighbours
  • pick up litter in your local park or open space
  • keep your property neat and attractive, and share your appreciation for those who help make our community beautiful by nominating a neighbour for a Kitchener in Bloom award
  • help a neighbour by shoveling their snow, bringing in their trash and recycling bins, delivering meals, or picking up items for them when you are shopping for necessities
  • recognize a deserving neighbour through the Good Neighbour recognition program
