One event on August 15, 2019 at 4:00 pm

Silicon Halton and OCF are asking members to join us in an important conversation. One that has the potential to impact all of us for the better. We’ve stepped up and promised to deliver two of the 25 Community Conversations events. We’re looking for 12 participants each. The dates are Mon Aug 12, 5 to 7 pm [register here please] or Thu Aug 15, 4 to 6 pm [register]. 


Do you feel you belong in Oakville? Do your friends, your co-workers or clients feel the same? Silicon Halton and the Oakville Community Foundation want to find out! 

Over 25 Community groups are hosting their own conversation over food to discuss issues, benefits, concerns and needs in Oakville, to gain an overall sense of how people feel they belong to this community.

Why is OCF doing this?

They’re celebrating their 25th Anniversary, and they felt that there was no better way to do that than to hear back from the Oakville community.

They want to find out what the sense of “Belonging” is like in Oakville, and how we can work together with the community to achieve this goal. By hosting a conversation, and sharing ideas with us, this will help them align future funding and research to support ideas, and allow for The Foundation’s future granting programs. The best ideas will also be featured in their 25th Anniversary Report, which is a great way to illustrate how the ideas will be implemented in the future!

What are the conversations about?

The conversations will revolve around “Belonging” in Oakville, building off of their “Sense of Belonging Survey.” This reflects how people feel that they fit into the Oakville community, and ways that we can make Oakville a better place to live. We can’t wait to hear all the ideas to make a better and stronger community.
