Living Our Mission


The CRC provides innovative solutions which help residents of Regent Park and the surrounding neighbourhoods enrich community well-being, improve economic conditions, realize their potential and direct their lives. We prioritize our efforts toward individuals and families facing barriers (e.g., caused by poverty, inequity, discrimination).


Regent Park and its surrounding neighbourhood is a flourishing community where individuals and families live lives of dignity, good health, and well-being.


We believe that our greatest strength is our ability to bring together people from all walks of life to build a stronger community.  Here are the core values that guide all that we do:


Working collaboratively with the community is at the heart of our work.


Our work reflects and embraces the diversity of our community.  We provide opportunities for diverse voices in the community to participate and contribute.


We treat people as unique individuals, respect personal needs and choices and build self-confidence and independence.  We create a welcoming environment in recognition of the inherent value, assets and potential of our community members.


We advocate along with the community for the resources and opportunities that people need to experience well-being.  We recognize that the status quo is not good enough for community members, and as such support them to actualize their full potential.

Integrity and Accountability

We value deeply the trust that the community and our supporters place in us.  We work tirelessly to ensure that this trust is well-founded.

Excellence, Innovation and Impact

We strive to continuously learn, innovate and improve, and use our resources wisely to deliver high impact programs for the betterment of our community. We advocate for changes in social systems that lead to greater dignity and equity for our community.


We are committed to communicating transparently and to working wisely in partnership with other organizations and groups.


We provide staff and volunteers with the support and resources they need to succeed and thrive and foster a culture of well-being, respect, and initiative.
