Safer community: In an effort to reinforce that our community is made up of a wonderful and diverse group of people and businesses, the MTCA promotes two programs:  Block Watch and the “Mount Tolmie Good Neighbour Program 2017” program.

The MTCA is proud to support your community with two amenities:  A bench located at Richmond/Poplar (near the bus stop) and a Bike Repair Station located at the north end of Shebourne Village Square.

Volunteer opportunities include: communications, special projects, lead contact for developments and more.  If you are able to give 3-4 hours per month, have the skills and knowledge in board governance and communications that would be a valued asset.
