About the St. James Town Community Corner (The Corner)
St. James Town Corner is an innovative hub which brings the community it serves and service providers together to work towards making St.
James Town a stronger and healthier community. We provide a venue for the residents to identify and solve problems in a collaborative and friendly environment and celebrate their cultures.
We connect the residents to health and social services such as primary health care, settlement services and employment services.
We also offer the opportunity for the community to develop their own social programs.
Our outreach efforts focus on building strong relationships with the community and connecting residents to a variety of facilities and services that our partners offer.
Using all possible outreach tools and venues such as community outreach events and social media, we make every effort to make sure that the people of St.
James Town know we are here for them.
