Community Advocacy

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The Peer Advocacy Office is located downstairs at The Table on the same floor as the Good Food Bank. The office is run by Peer Advocates - community members with their own experiences living on low-incomes and navigating government programs. They receive training from The Table, typically including our Community Action Training as well as other specialized training sessions.

Advocates are available to offer resources, referrals, and support on a wide array of issues from replacing lost identification, to helping fill out paperwork, to conducting a housing search. The office is open to all community members and no appointment is needed.

To speak to an advocate please call 613-267-6428 ext. 29 or email advocacy@thetablecfc.org

Office hours are: Monday 2pm – 5pm, Tuesday 12pm – 3:30pm, Wednesday 3:30pm – 6pm, Thursday CLOSED, and Friday 2pm – 5pm

*No appointment is necessary*
