The Gilmour Street Sale is an annual phenomenon in Peterborough in which Gilmour Street (and now some surrounding streets) feature yard sales. People were up at the crack of dawn, scoping out the best deals. The sale is a great opportunity to find some treasures or support your favourite local charities (like KWIC!). This year's Gilmour Street Sale was on Saturday, May 28, 2016. To fundraise, KWIC was selling books, baked goods, juice, water, and raffle tickets.
All the proceeds supported KWIC's local education and youth engagement programs.
A special thank you to our sponsors and supporters: Haper Collins, Minute Maid, Rocky Ridge Drinking Water Ltd., Doug Olthuis and Larry & Dave

The conference will include a wide range of perspectives in order to offer a multidimensional understanding of migration and the many issues related to it in the Global South and Global North.

According to KWIC's research, 1 in 4 local youth don't feel welcome or safe in youth spaces.
On October 30, 2015 we invited community members, partners, and allies to join us in the launch of our research around creating inclusive and welcoming youth spaces so that we may all work towards a solution.
