Mobile Community Office

We are proud to serve the community through our Mobile Community Office which can be found  at various locations throughout the neighbourhood.

The mobile office provides Spencer and staff with an opportunity to meet you where you live and to learn what you think we should be doing on our neighbourhood’s behalf.

This grassroots approach has led to many wonderful conversations as well as meeting folks with real difficulties who need assistance but would have never found their way into our office.  It’s what government should be about – reaching out, listening, and then working together to solve problems, and help dreams come to fruition.
