Municipality recognizes Community Living Month


Community Living Month, an annual initiative spanning over two decades, returns to Ontario this May.

The North Grenville Municipal Council officially designated May as Community Living Month, emphasizing inclusivity and support for all community members. The flag was raised at the Municipal Centre following the annual Breakfast Pancake fundraiser that took place Wednesday, May 1st.

Mayor Peckford highlighted the importance of inclusion for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, noting the profound impact of Community Living’s connections with residents.

“Inclusion is not just a concept; it’s a fundamental principle that enriches the fabric of our society. Community Living North Grenville, supporting approximately 110 individuals across twelve homes and employing ninety-seven professionals, stands as a vital pillar of support in the community. We are immensely proud of the work they do.”

Sandra Summers, Executive Director of Community Living North Grenville, underscored the significance of the month, “Community Living Month is not merely a time of reflection; it’s a catalyst for change. It’s about embracing diversity and creating pathways for individuals to thrive.”

Throughout this commemoration, North Grenville reaffirms its dedication to fostering a thriving community where everyone can contribute meaningfully.
