Dundas Community Services

About Us

Dundas Community Services was initiated as the Dundas Community Development Council in 1972 following a needs study conducted by the Greater Hamilton YMCA. The Association of Dundas Churches, who had called for the study, appointed the first officers of the new organization.

Mission: Our Mission is to guide, facilitate, and connect seniors and individuals to supportive services.
Vision: Our Vision is to be the number one trusted source helping Dundas seniors and residents live a healthy, supported life in a connected, caring, and inclusive community.
