Registered Community Organizations (RCOs) are the most localized way to engage in one’s community. Part community association, part organizer, believe it or not, your local RCO has power to shape debate on a variety of issues facing your neighborhood. Want a new park or community garden in your neighborhood? Talk to your RCO. How about if you’d like to organize an fundraiser or a social event in your area? Engage with your RCO. What about if a new building is proposed for your area? The community meeting about that building is organized by your RCO.
