A community is more than just a group of people. It’s more than the sharing of a physical place. A community is a larger social and cultural system. And it’s organic. That means its shape shifts and changes, depending on the efforts of the people within the community, and the influence of forces working from outside the community.

Think about what makes your community in Fredericton a rewarding place to live. A long list of qualities might come to mind. Things like culture and art, festivals and events, education, green space, heritage, and sustainability efforts. The more vibrant these things are, the more vibrant the community is to live in. It’s why the City of Fredericton values, invests in, and promotes these community-building ideas.
