Community Advocacy Office
Please note that currently the Community Advocacy Office is operating remotely. Please call (613-267-6428 ext 29) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and a Community Navigator will return your call during our regular office hours.
The Community Advocacy Office is located downstairs at The Table on the same floor as the Good Food Bank. The office is run by community members with lived experience of living on low-incomes and navigating government programs and other resources in our local area.
Community Navigators are available to offer resources, referrals, and support on a wide array of issues from applying for help with utility bills, to replacing lost identification, to helping fill out paperwork, to conducting a housing search, to discussing your options in a difficult situation. The office is open to all community members and no appointment is needed.
In some cases, your interaction with us may be like asking for directions, and just need to be pointed in the right direction. In other cases, it may be more like visiting an information centre when arriving at a new place, where you have some understanding of what your needs are, but may need some more detailed conversations and perhaps a map or two to figure out where you need to go.
In other cases, you may be dealing with a more complex situation, or be stuck waiting for the help you need from more formal organizations, and you may find us helpful as companions on your journey to help read the map, check in regularly, and maybe make some calls on your behalf while you focus on the road ahead.
No matter what, you are the one in the “driver’s seat”. We are here to help you get where you’re going.
Monday, 2 - 5pm; Tuesday, 12 - 3:30pm; Wednesday, 3:30 - 6pm; Friday, 2 - 5pm
