The North End Community Circle

NECC was formed through support from the Community Justice Society in 2010. It exists to build trust, relationships, social capital and dialogue between residents in the North End of Halifax. We host a variety of gatherings, some that are more targeted to residents (like potlucks, workshops and our annual June barbecue), and some that help service providers connect and coordinate.  The monthly roundtable takes place each month on the first Tuesday, 9 a.m., at Veith House.

In September 2014, NECC moved into Veith House. The new office is next door to a kitchen – the old orphanage kitchen which hasn’t been used in decades – that we hope to renovate for simple meal preparation.



To promote and activate helpful relationships, celebrate strengths and mobilize resources to address needs in collaboration with families, residents and stakeholders in the North End of Halifax.  Or, in short: to bring people together to make good things happen.

Email if you’d like to be reminded about community gatherings and the regular roundtable, or if you’d like to receive the monthly notes. You can also find the notes by doing a search (scroll all the way down to the bottom – sorry!) for   “roundtable.”


Thanks to funding from the United Way Halifax, Lisa Roberts was NECC’s part-time community facilitator from 2013 to 2015. Lisa Roberts is now a Canadian politician, who was elected to the Nova Scotia House of Assembly in a by-election on August 30, 2016.  Nicholas Stoddard took over as NECC facilitator now in February 2017.  Nicholas is an active community volunteer and is currently working part-time at Veith House to bring his passion and energy to the community.
