Our website will not change much during the summer.
We’re doing some virtual landscaping to provide you with an even better experience.
That will take most of our time for the next several weeks.
In the meantime, stay in touch by following us on Facebook
Thank you for your patience.
See you in … September?

Looking to grow a garden?
There are two Community Gardens in the QEXCA Community: Queen Elizabeth School and Aden Bowman Collegiate!
A community garden provides neighbourhood residents and families with the opportunity to become engaged in a healthy recreation activity while growing nutritious food, meeting neighbours, learning about the growing cycle and beautifying open space.

A new use for the Glengarda Residence, 301 Hilliard St. E.
St. Paul's Hospital has purchased the property and is proceeding with the development of a hospice.
