Print off our MONTHLY ATTRIBUTE card to use all year long.



It is the simple, everyday interactions we have with others in our communities that demonstrate our individual characters. Each interaction represents a thread that is woven to create the fabric of the community, for better or for worse. It is the goal of Character Community to shape and enhance all aspects of these interactions.

It takes all of us -- government, business, and education sectors; community organizations; and individuals and families -- to work towards creating the fabric of a community or building a sense that we are all part of the great community of York Region.

The Character Community Foundation of York Region involves volunteers and leaders from the community, government, education and business sectors who are committed to making York Region a Character Community by nurturing positive character attributes and enhancing York Region as a desirable place to live, learn, work and play.
