Sarnia and surrounding First Nations

Attend this event

The City of Sarnia and its partners, Diversity Ed. Safer Spaces Canada and the Mitton Village Community Development Advisory Committee, invite artists, individuals,  Indigenous or not-for-profit/charitable organizations and private sector businesses to submit Expressions of Interest (EOI) to participate in the Mitton Village Parkette Project.


The objective of this project is to engage the residents of Sarnia and surrounding First Nations by creating a vibrant and inclusive gathering space in Mitton Village with the addition of art, informal gatherings, and events.


The Mitton Village Parkette Project will involve the painting of 8 picnic tables that will help transform a portion of the Mitton Street municipal parking lot into a parkette for public use. Participants selected to paint the picnic tables will receive $250 towards material costs and $1,200 to be directed to a local charity or not-for-profit if their choice. The project will build excitement and inform a longer-term transformational plan to  activate the space.


Applications that support the inclusion of equity seeking groups and demonstrate a connection to Mitton Village will be prioritized.


This project acts as a first step to the Community Improvement Plan’s long-term public realm improvements planned for this space. By supporting short-term, temporary enhancements to the public realm in the Mitton Village commercial district we can build excitement for the longer-term plans to transform the space.

Update: The intake period for Expressions of Interest is now closed.

Funding for the project is provided by Canada Healthy Communities Initiative (CHCI), which is a $31 million investment by the Government of Canada and is administered by the Community Foundations of Canada and the Canadian Urban Institute. CHCI supports projects that create safe and vibrant public spaces, improve mobility options, and provide innovative digital solutions to connect people and improve health in response to COVID-19.
