Connect and Prepare

Call for Expressions of Interest for Apartments & Condominiums

Together, we are ready! We are looking for groups of neighbours living in the same apartment/condominium building within the City of Victoria to be part of an exciting program called "Connect and Prepare". Through a series of facilitated workshops, and with the support of micro-grants, program materials, and resource people, you and your neighbours will:
  • Learn about different kinds of potential emergencies
  • Participate in fun gatherings for socializing and discussing preparedness
  • Develop strategies to improve your individual and collective safety and resilience
  • Explore opportunities to become more connected and mutually supportive before, during and after emergencies.
  • Receive a bundle of micro-grants and resources!
  • RESOURCES INCLUDE:
    • Small micro-grants to help cover refreshments and other costs of hosting workshops
    • A customized bin of shared emergency supplies for you and your neighbours, valued at $500
    • Access to $200 in grants to launch other projects that build connections and preparedness with your neighbours
Connect and Prepare is based on the understanding that building social connections between neighbours is a critical foundation for becoming better engaged and resilient to different types of challenges, stresses and emergencies that may come our way either suddenly or gradually over time. This program involves 3 two-hour sessions that will run between February-May 2020 (schedule TBD). Interested? We'll be selecting up to four multi-unit buildings to participate!
