You are invited to join us on Saturday May 25th for A March To End Homelessness


We will meet at the Spirit Catcher at 10:00 am and march through the downtown core ending our march at Heritage Park. Here we will gather for speeches, a call to action, and a community picnic.


There is no us and them, there is only US, and we are stronger together!


Neighbours marching together is how we build community!


We will be marching in solidarity with other communities across the province. Join us for this provincial day of action and solidarity.


We march to bring awareness to the growing housing and homelessness crisis in our city. We march in support of our unsheltered community. We march to hold all levels of government accountable for their inaction in addressing this crisis.

  • Bottled water

  • Juice boxes

  • Cookies and snack items

  • Socks

  • Ball caps and sun hats
