Access Alliance and NC Integration


Dear Colleague,

Access Alliance Multicultural Heath and Community Services is excited to announce that a legal agreement has been reached which will see the Neighbourhood Centre undertake an integration by asset transfer with Access Alliance effective January 1, 2017.

Neighbourhood Centre was founded more than forty years ago and has a long history of collaborating with community members and organizations located in East Toronto to support people to realize their potential, direct their own lives, and improve economic and social conditions in the community. The NC has a range of vibrant seniors, family and community development programs and a strong commitment to volunteer and resident engagement. The Neighbourhood Centre’s Interim Executive Director, Rejwan Karim says, “We’re looking forward to this new chapter. This is a historic moment for Neighbourhood Centre. Together we will enhance our services to residents living in the east end communities that we have long served.” Access Alliance’s Executive Director Axelle Janczur agrees, “We’re looking forward to connecting our two organizations. Together we can offer more and better coordinated services and programs to community residents.”

Access Alliance Multicultural Health and Community Services provides accessible and community-governed primary health care, community development and capacity building, community based research and settlement services. Our goal is for all people who face barriers to have access to high quality and coordinated programs and services. We operate out of three physical locations in West, East and downtown Toronto and through itinerant service locations at partner agencies across the city. We have been offering services for more than 30 years and reach more than 13,000 people and their families annually.

Yours truly,

Axelle Janczur,
