Community Connections

Thanks to their prominent locations in the cities across the province, our Villages have always been seen as community hubs, eager to welcome friends and neighbours in for events and services.

Some Villages have health clinics and pharmacies that welcome people in, and many others have regular clubs and organizations that make use of the ample space in our Town Halls or Libraries for events and meetings. We love when outside choirs or youth groups, for example, come into our Villages, for just as our residents maintain connections in the wider community, so, too, do they welcome people of all ages in.
