Event Details

The Sudbury Community Hub Gathering is an opportunity for anyone interested in effective and lasting community change to learn about a community hub model that’s working in the north. Over a delicious dinner, participants will hear from those directly involved in improving their neighbourhoods and the kinds of things that make it possible. Participants will also have an opportunity to learn about the plans the Province of Ontario and the City of Greater Sudbury have with regard to community hubs and ask questions of all the panelists. A dessert mixer and music by Kassie Tyers will follow, serving as a time for people to mingle and make connections. The more interwoven our lives are, and the more we work together and share our resources, the more we can enhance the lives of everyone in our communities! When everyone is at the table, there's nothing we can't do!

The NOAH Community Hub

The NOAH Community Hub (NCH) is a collaborative effort of community members and service providers who pool their resources and talents in order to connect communities and individuals with available resources and foster independence so they can continue to advocate for themselves and successfully access what they need on their own. The NCH is sponsored by the Social Planning Council of Sudbury.


Currently present in several of Greater Sudbury’s most socio-economically disadvantaged neighbourhoods, the NCH facilitates a process of community planning and priority setting among community members. In addition they help to establish a comfortable place in the neighbourhood where health and social services, programs, activities, project and supports can be carried out.


The NCH model can adapt itself to the unique priorities of each community. The NCH’s model of collaboration among a wide range of partners makes it possible to work with a broad range of issues and groups including single parents, seniors, families, street associated and homeless individuals, Indigenous peoples, sex trade workers, the un/employed and under/employed and those with mental health issues and other disabilities. Past and present services and activities undertaken through the NCH include anti-violence education, street health services, street art, training and education, playground revitalization, practical supports like healthy food and transportation, referrals, employment opportunities and financial support. Through the hubs, people become informed, gain a sense of belonging and value, connect to needed resources and the broader community, and therefore are less isolated and have a better chance of transitioning out of poverty.
