About NeighbourLink North York
Imagine North York as a community where everyone thrives.
At NeighbourLink North York our goal is to foster a resilient, sustainable and vibrant community where no single individual or group is left behind.
Our belief is that transformation happens when we come together as friends, neighbours, organizations and business owners to address poverty, social isolation, discrimination, violence and other community gaps and injustices.
We are here to empower our community members with the support and tools to enrich life in meaningful and practical ways, and we’ll do that by listening and learning.
NeighbourLink North York serves the North York area and includes outreach through the We Love Willowdale network, supporting the Willowdale community.
We acknowledge that North York is the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, the Haudenosaunee and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River.
We also acknowledge that this territory is the subject of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant. This is a treaty between the Anishinaabe, the Mississaugas and the Haudenosaunee that bound them to share the territory and protect the land.
Subsequent Indigenous nations and peoples, settlers and all newcomers have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect.
We all eat from the Dish with One Spoon and we share the responsibility to ensure the dish is never empty.
