Each year Community & Recreation staff and resident volunteers come together to offer wonderful community-wide events. We offer the list below to briefly inform you of what we do and what you can get involved in.

Earth Hour – Multiple Locations at 30 & 35 Charles St. W.   Late March, celebrate with us while your apartment lights are out. Games, prizes and snacks will keep you movin’ while the world conserves. Presented by Community & Recreation and Education & Communication.

Annual Residents Garden Party – Ellen Giles Garden

In early June, we celebrate the Spring with a party on our rooftop garden. In previous years, we’ve had planting, face painting, book exchanges, hop scotch & more! Of course there is always free food and drinks too!

Halloween Haunted House – Activity Room, 3rd floor, 30 Charles St. W.

October 31st means it’s time to have some frightful fun. The last Saturday in October is when we host our Halloween Haunted House. Staff and volunteers are in costume. We also send out a poster to every apartment which guides residents how to have a safe and happy night.

Eco Family Fair

When mid-November comes, we come together to learn about the environment. Conservation, recycling, pollution and innovation. Children are very welcome. Come try organic fair-trade cocoa! Thank you to our many sponsors.

December Holiday Party – Drop-In Centre, 3rd floor, 30 Charles St. W.
