Engaging with Our Community at Alex House…


Community is core to our identity as individuals. Our uniqueness shines when we have a chance to share our gifts with others.

Everyone is welcome to be a part of Alex House programs! While we provide programming targeted to identified groups (such as our monthly seniors’ out trips), we encourage the participation of everyone – newcomer Canadians, supported adults, LGBT2Q+ individuals, and others in our activities and events. Community is not just about geographical location…it’s about the power of our unity in diversity, built on shared values and beliefs. Join us, become members, find out what we do, and more importantly, contribute to and be a part of your community. 

Community is the core of every neighbourhood house. As uniquely place-based agencies, neighbourhood houses exist for the community, and are of the community. They work within neighbourhoods and between neighbours to strengthen bonds, providing services and resources which in turn, enrich the community. Under the umbrella of a neighbourhood house, neighbours come together in grassroots, collaborative community engagement and development, which both reflects and magnifies our common priorities and aspirations.

Alex House events and programs build our shared capacity to gather, connect and build a greater spirit of community.

So You Want to Volunteer?

Would you like to contribute to your community? Share and build your talents and skills? Alex House is a volunteer driven organization that relies on the ideas, directions and contributions of enthusiastic and committed members of our community. We welcome any and all community members with a desire to share their talents and knowledge with their neighbours at activities, programs and events (i.e. education, performance, writing, art, dance, exercise, storytelling, workshops, music etc). Come to us with your idea and we'll see if we can make it happen. 

We’re always looking for committed volunteers. If you’re interested in sharing your time and ideas, please call 604-535-0015 ext 236 or e-mail
