Connection is core to our humanity. While the current public health crisis means that we must be physically apart, Strathcona County Social Action is here to bring you inspiring stories of connection, community and resilience.  

This page is a communication tool for the work done in support of the Social Framework. It is a platform to share exciting new initiatives and success stories that demonstrate the lived values of the Social Framework in Strathcona County. 

Take a look at our latest social action stories:

Social Action: Big Brothers Big Sisters: Organizations have the power to enable life-changing mentoring relationships to ignite the power and potential of young people, and Big Brothers Big Sisters is doing just that. Riley Penner and Mason Nurse share their experience with the program. 

Social Action: Helping in a heat wave: A County resident was concerned about his two dogs overheating and was looking for a cool, safe place to go. He reached out to Pet Valu on Baseline road for support and staff came to the rescue. Not only did the team take care of the pups, but they went above and beyond to also provide support for the resident. 

Social Action: Linking Generations: A new friend, a new connection, and the comfort of a shared laugh is much more important than we often realize, and we are never too young, or too old, to appreciate this. Linking Generations is driving this idea forward, making a positive impact of the health and well-being for both seniors and youth.
