Who We Are
The Durand Neighbourhood Association Inc. was established in 1972 as a politically independent community organization and chartered as a not-for-profit provincial corporation. It is financially self-supporting through annual membership dues and (non-charitable) contributions.
The vision of the DNA is to be the model downtown community that champions natural and built heritage, with priorities in creating a diverse, sustainable, inclusive, and vibrant future.
The Durand Neighbourhood Association’s mission is to be the voice of the neighbourhood. We are a resource and an advocate. We engage residents and stakeholders and champion for neighbourhood priorities.
