Home - Samuel Centre For Social Connectedness — Samuel Centre For Social Connectedness

The Samuel Centre for Social Connectedness is dedicated to building social connectedness within and between communities to overcome social isolation. We strive to foster connectedness through research, programming, partnerships and advocacy, bringing together the contributions of diverse scholars, students, advocates, and people with lived experiences.

As the COVID-19 pandemic persists, we are facing ongoing challenges both locally and globally. Amidst this, the consequences of social isolation have risen to the global consciousness, and we have witnessed how many individuals and communities have been deprived of respectful relationships with our systems and institutions, resulting in a deep deficit of belonging to which all have the right.

We invite you to join us in this movement of building a society where everyone is valued, seen, and heard, and where everyone is supported in realizing their inherent right to belong.
