Kinbridge Community Association is a community based organization that works to build capacity in the people we serve.  As a grass roots organization we strive to develop and run programs that serve the needs of our community as identified by our community.

Through participation in our programs people are able to get their needs met, develop skills and make community connections.  This increases opportunities and capacity for positive growth in all areas, including education and employment.  Kinbridge operates primarily out of three sites in two neighbourhoods in south Galt, serving a population of more than 24,000 people. We also coordinate a variety of programs at other sites including local schools and churches.


Our neighbourhood is a community that is connected through relationships, is full of opportunities, celebrates diversity, and provides a safe and inclusive environment.


We engage community creating a healthy, vibrant neighbourhood through facilitation of recreational educational, and social supports so our neighbours can reach their full potential.


People –We respect and embrace our diverse community.

Relationships –We cultivate relationships that are reciprocal in nature rooted in equity, compassion and respect.

Inclusion – We embrace the uniqueness of each child, youth and adult and advocate for their right to reach their full potential.

Celebrate – We celebrate the power of building capacity with families, partners, donors and funders.

Place and purpose for all

Our neighbours are our customers. We serve people from ages birth to senior, of all cultures, ethnicities and economic backgrounds who come to us with a defined need.

Kinbridge then works with these individuals to meet that need, taking great pride along the way to foster relationships with the people next door, our police officers, other community agencies, our schools, our fire departments — people who work every day to make our community a great place to be.

Statement Against Racism and Hate

Kinbridge stands behind those that point out racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, and other forms of oppression unfolding in our community. This type of behaviour has no place in our community. It’s harmful to young people, it’s harmful to adults, and it’s holding us back from building a community where everyone belongs. Connections through relationships rooted in equity, compassion and respect is fundamental to belonging.
We encourage our community to connect with local anti-racism resources, learn about the ways that white supremacy and white nationalism are being perpetuated in Waterloo Region and beyond, and condemn acts of white supremacy. A few resources shared by Children and Youth Planning Table are below.
There are many local anti-racism educators and trainers to learn from.
We are working together with our allies to dismantle the racial barriers that continue to cause harm to communities and will not be silent as we move towards sustainable change.
