Creating Connection Barrie is a charter member of Creating Connection Canada, a network of welcoming and inclusive communities committed to sharing authentic conversation, promoting meaningful activities, fostering holistic wellness practices, and turning purpose into action.

By welcoming and accepting people of every walk of life, culture, faith or tradition (including those who identify as “more spiritual than religious”, humanist, agnostic, or searching for meaning), the collective experience transcends the sum of our individual ways of being, and meaningful community is formed.
