For 2018 we have 2 groups who have been awarded Start Up grants through the GNSC (Sunnyacres NG and South End NG). These small grants are given to interested individuals/groups to create an event, a program, outreach and/or to gain interest in building a future leadership team that might lead to the creation of a Neighbourhood Group. If you are interested in hearing more from them and/or connecting with them here is their contact information:
