I am a new member of the Pelham Referral Group, joining just a week ago. As a Pelham native, and new business owner I was motivated to join the PRG because I was impressed with the members knowledge of each other’s businesses. This allowed them to be confident they were making referrals to others who provide the same quality service. As a Naturopathic Doctor, I learn a lot about what is going on in my patient's lives. Therefore, it is important to me to be able to suggest other professionals I am confident will provide the same standard of care I do. The PRG is a great way for me to know my patient's, when referred, will be in good hands. 

Organized by local Chainsaw Carver, Jean-Pierre Gauthier the Chainsaw Carving Event held this weekend in Welland attracted chainsaw artists from as far away as Buckhorn, Ontario near Peterborough.

We noticed a new Vendor tent at the Welland Farmers Market and just had to stop in and take a closer look!

What is Niagara Community Bikes we asked? Colin Ferguson was happy to share his vision of the new social enterprise he is launching to serve our Niagara community.

"I am starting and hoping to build Niagara Community Bikes in our region.  The goal is providing the community with affordable means of transportation and moving on education and a place for people to work on their own bikes.

The Welland Museum has just completed a four month partnership with students from the New Media Web Design Program at Niagara College. Graduating students Myles Fisher and David Grobbo have planned, developed and implemented a new website for the museum under the instruction of Mark Hardwick. 

The fourth term project is a great accomplishment for the students as it has allowed them to demonstrate their skills acquired from the program, while gaining both experience and exposure in the industry. 

Springtime is almost here. If you’re like many people, the arrival of spring means it’s time to spruce up your home. But why stop there? This year, consider applying some of those same spring-cleaning techniques to your investment portfolio.


Since 2002, the Foundation has raised almost $180,000 to send more than 2,000 kids in Niagara to summer camp. We've used the funds to provide bursaries for campers to go to one of 10 camp providers across Niagara. We've just launched our campaign for 2015 and are asking for your help.

The Many Hands Project Reveal Day will be a carnival inspired community event, signalling the completion of the renovation to Strive Niagara. Everyone that contributed to the project will have the opportunity to view the success of the project and see where their generous contributions went. We encourage everyone to come out and see the positive change that the project will bring to the communities of Niagara.
