Social Services Hubs

About our hubs

Our hubs bring together City and community services in a common space to serve your needs and the well-being of our community. Hubs will be helpful if you are looking for work, or if you are a youth, family or new resident who may be facing extra challenges related to finances, housing, employment or health. Our hubs make it easy for you to get information on:

  • Finding a job
  • Finances
  • Immigration and settlement
  • Recreation
  • Health
  • Education and training
  • Youth services
  • Addiction
  • Counselling and life skills development

What other resources and supports can you find?

  • Support from friendly staff, referrals to programs and services
  • Free use of computers, printers, fax machines, photocopiers and phones
  • Job postings, Internet access for job banks, market research and job search
  • Workshops, information seminars, clinics and drop-ins
  • Free on-site child care for children ages six months to six years while using the hub services

Community spaces

We have space available for meetings, workshops, clinics and drop in services. If you are a community agency or internal City service, contact your local hub to learn more.
