Who is C5

Between us we support and empower:

  • Indigenous individuals and families
  • Some of the most economically, socially and culturally excluded and marginalized children, youth and adults in our inner city
  • Newcomers, immigrants and refugees
  • Children and their families living in vulnerable situations
  • Teen parents

Collective action in the Community

Together with partners we’re working to overcome barriers in the system using our experience in service delivery. That means collaborating on specific initiatives where collective action achieves stronger outcomes for families and communities – initiatives such as The Relentless Connector Initiative and Ubuntu.

Changing the system

As a knowledgeable community resource, we inform and influence social policy and we’re a sounding board for decision makers in all levels of government. Most importantly we bring the perspectives of the thousands of people we work with to the table, shaping policy and decisions to truly reflect their realities, hope and dreams.
