Helping vulnerable communities impacted by the lack of social and economic support through supportive programs.
Our programs are designed to target vulnerable communities, with most programs designed primarily for vulnerable individuals within the Black and Indigenous Communities. We are offering support in three broad areas: health, education / mentoring, and employment.
We invite everyone to connect with us as we fulfil our mission.

This program is targeted primarily at vulnerable Black and Indigenous youth, to foster group counselling, peer group discussions and recreation with a view to find solutions of everyday living.
Our program is about providing support through connecting youth with a mental health professional and peers who are also share the same lived experience who can impart their own experience and provide encouragement and support.
There are programs designed specifically for Black Youth, Indigenous Youth. The program is operated in an informal, social setting that includes board and other recreational games that allow participants to bond. A key recreation is learning and playing chess where we offer instructions on how to play the game and we schedule play time, in between the workshops and the peer support. Light refreshments are served.
Our support volunteers help students and mentors discuss their professions, business, or service and take questions. They discuss various career options, schoolwork, college, help youth with college applications, choosing a college, self-care, budgets and any other topic young adults may be interested in discussing.

Re-Imagine Ontario wants to spread our message that we can be the change we seek through hope, compassion and action. We believe that a single action can make a difference in our communities, and that collective action can change the world. Through action, partnership, and outreach, Re-Imagine Ontario works tirelessly each day to support, and change perceptions about the most vulnerable among us. Come join us as we work to change lives.
Our vision is to improve the social and economic indicators of all vulnerable populations.
We see value in everyone. For a brief moment, let’s re-imagine a world where everyone shares the Canadian dream regardless of race, sex, religion, gender, or politics. Where we look out for each other and support the most vulnerable among us. Where a culture of care is the norm rather than the exception.
Our vision re-imagines a world where we change perceptions, and we change lives through community. We believe that if we each do our small part to reach out to that young person struggling with family, school, or career, or to that teen who may be confused and angry with the world and failing in school, that new immigrant who is unsure of their footing in a new country, that parent who is raising a family while caring for a sick parent, or that isolated person, then that’s one additional step in creating healthy, productive, safe, and happy communities.
We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and we are driven by the same ideas we initially founded our organization upon: support, empowerment, and progress, so that we all move upwards together by changing lives.
Our mission is to improve the health, education and employment of vulnerable people, with some focus on black and indigenous populations, by fostering strong community support networks.
Our mission is our first step in achieving our vision. This starts with working to change the lives of many vulnerable children, youth and adults, many being visible-minority Canadians. Our mental health programs are very important the starting points in addressing the problem in Ontario of one out of every five children not accessing the mental help they need especially among racialized populations. Mission also addresses the mental health of adults in need.
We believe that if we see better outcomes in education especially in vulnerable communities, will go a long way in changing perceptions and changing lives.
If children have role models from similar backgrounds interacting with them, and to whom they can look up to and trust, they will benefit from it. The purpose of our mentoring programs is to introduce children and young adults to successful people from within their own communities, who will share their own stories and give useful life tips.
Our mission also extends to foster support for individuals who are vulnerable due to the frailty that often comes with aging, or those persons who are disabled, indigent, or isolated. We offer in-home personal and home care support to these individuals.
We want to thank these generous and supportive organizations who have provided funding and those individuals and organizations who are working in partnership with Re-Imagine Ontario.
