Community Development Program

In partnership with the Lowertown population and organizations working in the neighbourhood, our goal is to identify and analyze the needs of Lowertown residents, find solutions to the issues affecting them, develop new projects and services to deal with the identified needs and advocate and encourage collective actions that will make the living conditions of Lowertown residents better.

  • Community Garden
    Beginning each spring, people interested in gardening come together to work in a community garden. From planting to harvesting, the people meet and work together to do the tasks needed in order to get a bountiful garden.
  • Income Tax Clinics
    Every year, every Tuesday night from February to April, LCRC offers income tax clinics where low-income people can have their tax forms filled by volunteers for free.
