It is nearly impossible to love our neighbours if we don’t know our neighbours. And herein lies the tension of our times: We live in such a connected world with such limited connection.

Relationships Matter.

Stories Matter.



Who is in your community? What does it mean to belong? How can you help foster belonging for others?

“To co-create a restorative anti-racist, place based movement of healing, equity, justice, and belonging”

Good City People works to make Ottawa a better city for all. We work to initiate and strengthen neighbourhood networks by helping leaders of all sectors collaborate and co-create on belonging, equity and justice. We equip and train businesses and organizations to prioritize place based engagement, we host events that centre artists and the marginalized, we organize and activate for equity and justice. We believe that when we do the hard work of loving our neighbour and neighbourhood our whole city thrives.
