Become a Neighbourhood Connector
Building a Sense of Community in St. Albert
As someone who cares about your neighbourhood and makes efforts to bring neighbours together, you understand the value of knowing and being connected to one another. A strongly connected neighbourhood fosters a sense of belonging, improves personal safety, provides mental and emotional support and helps children and youth thrive. The relationships that grow from our neighbour-to-neighbour connections help us understand and celebrate our similarities and differences so that the diversity in all our neighbourhoods is embraced and celebrated. Everyone feels welcome!
By becoming a Neighbourhood Connector, you are joining a larger community effort that aims to build a sense of community and connectedness on every street, apartment and condominium complex in St. Albert.
