A guide to help multicultural non-profit groups find space for activities, events and services.
Edmonton’s non-profit and community based organizations contribute significantly to Edmonton’s overall quality of life and improve Edmontonians’ ability to connect with each other and build community. They provide diverse opportunities for Edmontonians to access services, and participate in activities, programs or events. These organizations are increasingly challenged to find suitable space from which to provide programming and services to Edmontonians.
Non-profit organizations may want access to space in a variety of ways (renting, leasing, sharing and/or developing space). Finding space, whether it is to offer a program or to build a facility, can be a challenging task. These resources are meant to assist non-profit organizations in Edmonton with addressing these challenges.
Edmonton SpaceFinder is a website that connects Edmonton non-profit organizations that need space with those who have available space. It was developed in collaboration by the Arts Habitat Association of Edmonton, the Edmonton Chamber of Voluntary Organizations, the Multicultural Coalition for Equity in Health and Wellbeing and the City of Edmonton.
Non-profit organizations needing space are encouraged to use Edmonton SpaceFinder to find information on space available in the Edmonton area. Edmonton organizations with available space are encouraged to advertise that space for free on Edmonton SpaceFinder.
