The Community-Info project was designed to give all communities access to a free website.

Each Community-Info website includes the following:

  • Upcoming Community Events
  • Photo Gallery
  • Discussion Board
  • Leisure Guide
  • Local Directory
  • Classifieds
  • Crime Tips

The main Community-Info framework has already been developed and is ready to be used. We are currently looking for funding to gather and enter the initial data as well as to promote the sites in the communities.


  • Setup and launch a minimum of 24 community websites within 1 year (approximately 2 per month).
  • Enable other communities to build their own website using our framework.


As Community-Info is ready to be deployed, you can find more information by visiting the Community-Info Website. To see an example of a community using the Community-Info framework, visit St-Adolphe's website.

Community Benefit

Community-Info was built to keep users aware of the latest and most relevant information in their community. Upcoming events, classifieds and the latest discussion topics are all available at a glance. This allows users to be able to stay aware of what’s going on in their community and allows local organizations to easily contact their community members. Increasing awareness and participation in community events and activities, builds stronger communities.
