Mt. Pleasant, Kiwassa and Little Mountain Neighbourhood Houses invite you to the 2nd rendition of their “Men’s Wellness Fair”. Please join in for an afternoon of learning about programs and services that are catered towards the health needs of men in our communities. Come learn about a diverse range of programs that support mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health. The team acknowlede the vast array of ways that humans can identify as men and intend to create a space that is inclusive and safe for trans, non-binary and queer identities. This project is meant to connect people that identify as men to support services that benefit them; however, it is worth mentioning that in doing this work the team are motivated by both the concern they have for men’s health and a broader commitment to the health and wellbeing of our communities and families. From this position wthe team wants to respond to a need in our communities by bringing together agencies that nurture the wellbeing of community via the avenue of men’s health.


This event includes lunch, introductions from the supporting organizations, opportunity to learn more about their work and engage in conversations, a light movement activity, live music and a speaker. This event is open to everyone and is kid friendly.
