Ward 8 Community Action Network

Your CAN wants to hear from you! You can help identify and work on projects and actions to help shape our neighbourhoods. Together we can build neighbourhoods that we can all be proud of!

CANs are community volunteers and neighbours who care about the neighbourhoods we live in and want them to be the best they can be. We work with City Staff, Councillors, local businesses, schools, and other organizations on projects that improve our quality of life. Together, we identify needs and priorities, and empower community members to make a difference.

CANs promote inclusive, respectful, and diverse membership and welcome all members of our community to participate and share their voice. More information on CANs can be found here: https://www.greatersudbury.ca/city-hall/get-involved/community-action-networks/. Contact us for more information or to get involved.

Projects we’ve worked on include playground enhancements like splash pads and park building renewals, community and pollinator gardens, community art installations, local events and festivals, and trails and safe streets. We’ve held budget and election town halls as well as meetings to gather input on important issues to present to our Councillor and the City. We've helped other community groups get organized, and have worked with many other community partners on projects that benefit the ward and the city.

We live and work in N'Swakamok / Sudbury in Robinson-Huron Treaty territory and on the traditional lands of Atikameksheng Anishnawbek and Wahnapitae First Nation.

Pin Something!

Tell us what you like or don't like about our ward! Place a red "Issues" pin for an area or issue that you'd like addressed. Place a green "Wonderful!" pin for something that you think is great in our ward that we should promote. Note that you can only add a pin inside our ward boundary. To add a pin, click the + sign on the left, chose your pin (red or green), and drag it to the location where you want to place it. Then enter a description to tell us more info about what you want to see, and press the "submit" button. You'll see your pin info, and then you can use the left arrow to add another pin if you want.
