Background

Founded in 1979, Townshippers’ Association has spent more than three decades at the forefront of community engagement.

Townshippers’ Association’s projects address heritage and culture, community development, access to health and social services, support for seniors, and youth retention.  The organization’s input is regularly sought at the municipal, provincial, and federal levels as well as by other stakeholders on a variety of issues affecting English-speakers in the region and across the province; our extensive knowledge base and recognized expertise is a result of the hard work and dedication of the organization’s staff and team of volunteers throughout the years.
