Our Mission

Imagine a connected 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 mission is to engage and empower neighbours to care for each other in practical, relational and sustainable ways that give everyone the opportunity to live out their potential.


As a locally based Christian community development organization, we believe transformation happens when we come together as friends, neighbours, churches, 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.


Through awareness, participation and advocacy, we will seek opportunities and develop programs that benefit the most vulnerable among us.


By building bridges to connect our community, one individual and one group at a time, relationships will be created based on transparency, integrity, diversity and inclusion.


Everyone has the right to reach their potential in a safe and supportive community and we are here to work with you to help make that happen in North York.


NeighbourLink North York serves the North York area and includes outreach through the We Love Willowdale network, supporting the Willowdale community.
