Self-Identity: We affirm the value and uniqueness of every individual and provide space for people to participate in ways that reflect and strengthen their connections to themselves and others.
Community: We believe that when individuals participate in community, everyone benefits. Belonging, sharing and supporting each other makes us stronger together – as individuals, families and society.
Inclusion: Diverse voices and perspectives create opportunities for all. We welcome, appreciate and commit to the participation of our members.
Empowerment: We support the positive actions of individuals and groups, to realize their own potential and to make individual and community change.
Hope will be found by understanding that diversity is the essence of who we are as Canadians and why we need each other to fulfill it.
Enriching our communities through social services that promote and build a strong and prosperous society.
A city enriched by the integration and interdependence of all cultures.
