Your neighbourhood partner

Local partner organizations manage all aspects of the Neighbourhood Small Grants program. Partner organizations are where your community coordinators work. They also oversee the Neighbourhood Grants Committee, which is unique to each community that reviews your grant applications.


Formed in September of 2019, KANDU (Knowledging All Nations and Developing Unity – formerly known as the Kelowna Area Network of Drug Users) is a peer led, supportive, drug user group. We aim to work with community members, local businesses, government, RCMP, first responders and bylaws to promote the equal treatment of people who use drugs. Our goal is to create a safer and more healthy community for all.
