Who We Are
Building community through social justice for over 104 years.
Saint Columba House
Over the years, Saint Columba House has frequently spoken out on issues of public policy, mobilized communities to defend their rights and has always taken a strong stand to defend and work alongside those who are excluded: the intellectually challenged, the unemployed, children from low-income families, the elderly, those whose lives are affected by physical or mental illness.
Saint Columba is engaged in seeking justice through empowerment, education and social action,
as a community ministry of the United Church of Canada in partnership with the Point Saint Charles Community.
