Hubs Program Creates Vibrant Neighbourhoods

BRANTFORD, ON – Brantford’s Neighbourhood Hubs program has emerged as a provincial leader in the development of neighbourhood-based solutions to community challenges. The program offers a space to bring people together to take part in a variety of activities and services in the East Ward, Eagle Place, Holmedale and Downtown Central neighbourhoods.

Residents, community agencies and City of Brantford staff work together to create projects and programs delivered through the Neighbourhood Hubs located at Doug Snooks / Eagle Place Community Centre, Major Ballachey School Hub, T.B. Costain Community Centre and Woodman Park Community Centre. A fifth Neighbourhood Hub at Central Public School will open in Spring 2019.

The neighbourhoods are becoming stronger with more community events, more volunteers and more people using the parks and community centres since the program began in 2013. Anyone interested in getting involved in the neighbourhood development can call the City of Brantford’s Parks and Recreation department at 519-756-1500.

“I’ve learned a lot about the Neighbourhood Hubs program and I am really looking forward to watching this important work expand to create more activities and services for families in need.”

City of Brantford Mayor Kevin Davis.

“This is long-term community-based work and some of the issues we are working on are certainly challenging but we are seeing positive signs. The number of services, programs and participants has increased every year since we began this valuable grass roots programming.”

Sandy Jackson, General Manager, Community Programs, Parks and Recreation, City of Brantford.
