Kawartha Works Community Co-op (KWCC) was formed in 2015 to make it easier to develop community initiatives in the City of Kawartha Lakes.
The Co-op offers the lower cost and convenience of shared services such as insurance and accounting, and having an incorporated status to receive grants. We also now have a network of members with a variety of community connections of shared information and experience, and potential partnering for projects. The participating initiatives range from family support networking to community consultation, music events, summer and winter festivals, housing planning, canal docking improvements, town beautification and bike rentals.
KWCC is modeled on the Haliburton County Community Cooperative which for 20 years has demonstrated the benefit of a shared community approach. We appreciate their assistance in the formation of KWCC.
