Good Neighbour Recognition Program

Recognize a neighbour who has helped you or others in a time of need or has shown leadership through initiatives that help make your neighbourhood safe, connected and friendly.

Request a formal recognition through the Mayor’s Office and your good neighbour will be eligible to receive:

  • A letter from the Mayor and a “Good Neighbour Recognition” certificate.

This program will continue after the COVID-19 pandemic but for now consider nominating your neighbour for actions such as:

  • Shopping or running errands for neighbours who are under quarantine or at risk, including seniors and those with chronic illnesses.
  • Reaching out regularly to neighbours through friendly phone calls, neighbourhood newsletters or Facebook groups.
  • Helping a neighbour in need to access community supports.
  • Bringing joy to neighbours by organizing a neighbourhood-wide activity such as themed window art, Zoom Game Nights or Happy Hours.
  • Helping neighbours to help others by organizing neighbourhood-wide efforts such as food drives or fundraisers for local charities.
