Charleswood and Headingley are full of amazing local organizations. Strong community groups play a role in making our two neighbourhoods such wonderful places to live. I’m grateful to all the community members who dedicate their time and efforts to developing our community groups. Time and effort isn’t all it takes to foster strong organizations. Provincial grants help, too. I’d like to point out some of our local groups who received Green Team Funding.
Oasis church is located on Elmhurst Avenue in Charleswood, however, due to COVID has moved services online. Thank you to Oasis Church for being so adaptable during these difficult times!

The Harte Trail is a local gem in Charleswood. This trail is a piece of the Trans Canada Trail. The Friends of the Harte Trail are stewards of this amazing natural space and I thank them for all their hard work.
Charleswood Minor Baseball Association
Sports teach children so many important life lessons and teams are often the beginning of many lifelong friendships. Thank you to all the organizers of this important community group!
Green Team funding will allow many of these organizations to hire local youth. Gaining valuable work experience in our community is a wonderful thing for some of our younger constituents in Roblin.
