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.

Our mission is to renew the city through nurturing neighbourhood community. In each walkable street there are growing friendships and a leadership that work together to see their streets being safe places and a place that we want to live in.

A neighbourhood engagement initiative dedicated to working with the community members of the Ford City area to increase neighbourhood safety, neighbourhood events, improve neighbourhood infrastructure, and connect resources that support the residential and commercial revitalization of Ford City.

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.
