Community Hubs

Memorial's Community Hubs connect the university with communities across Newfoundland and Labrador, fostering collaboration and increasing capacity.

The Hubs are located in rural areas across the island and in Labrador. These hubs are community spaces where people can access the Internet, technology, and a place to work, study, or collaborate. By working with partners (community groups, provincial organizations, governments, educational institutions, etc.) that already operate buildings in communities, the Community Hubs program is able to provide financial support for technology, Internet access, other equipment , and/or programming support to increase access and opportunity within existing spaces.

Each Community Hub looks a little different, because each community has its own culture and personality, as well as its own needs and challenges. We collaborate with communities in existing structures to increase access and capacity, working with each successful applicant to co-design the space and determine what the support will entail.

There are currently 17 Community Hubs across Newfoundland and Labrador.
