Ward One for Everyone! An Invitation to support Ward 1's Ronald McDonald House

Please join Councillor Aidan Johnson in volunteering at our December 7th Ronald McDonald House Bistro Night.  Details below!

Life can change very quickly for families when a child is being treated in hospital. Ronald McDonald House is a ‘Home away from Home’ for these families. December is a special time when people come together to celebrate family and reach out to others. Please consider volunteering with us!

This is a video with more information about Ronald McDonald House:

Participatory Budget Project Update!


Making ideas a reality. When Aidan was elected Ward 1 Councillor in 2014, he committed to continuing the Participatory Budgeting (PB) Process started by the previous Councillor Brian McHattie.  PB asks Ward 1 residents how to spend 1.5 million dollars in Area Rating Funding (read more about PB and Area Rating Funding by clicking here). Overall, the process highlights how 1 resident can submit an idea to be reviewed and voted on by the community and then implemented by the City.

Below is a status report of the ideas that were top voted and received funding since Aidan's election (click to enlarge, opens PDF file):
