Our Neighbourhoods

The Initiative envisions a thriving and distinct Glengarry-Marentette, one of many vibrant neighbourhoods in Windsor, where neighbours work and celebrate together and have taken ownership of the community’s future.

A grassroots organization committed to making West Windsor a better place to live, work and play. Through our community organizing efforts, we strive to engage and empower residents by providing the infrastructure and tools necessary for them to succeed.
