The City of Burlington is now offering Community Hubs at two locations for free community-led activities.
Community groups looking to provide free activities, programs or events to Burlington residents can book a free Community Hub. The activities or events can be on-going or a one-time opportunity that enhance community connections. To qualify for free use, programs and activities must be at no cost to participants. This could include training, community meetings, support groups, clubs, gatherings, cultural activities or other neighbourhood programs.
The cost of insurance will also be covered.
Businesses, for-profits, socials or any program that generates money or future businesses can rent the space at regular rates plus the cost of insurance.

Emilie Cote, Director of Recreation, Community and Culture
“There are many great, local community groups who would like to provide programming or hold events but need a bigger space or don’t always have the money to pay for a rental. The City is proud to offer two free Community Hubs to make these neighbourhood connections possible. A Community Hub can provide a chance for groups to connect people for fun, engagement or learning opportunities.”
