Non-profit Landlord

Kindle Communities Inc. is a non- profit landlord, focused on supporting the space needs of community-based organizations that serve vulnerable children, youth, families and neighbourhoods. We manage properties that allow community groups to deliver services when and where they are needed.

The Shelldale Centre

Office in shelldaleWith over 13 years of development and landlord experience we have learned that great things happen when you bring organizations together under one roof. Our first hub, the Shelldale Centre, has been recognized locally as an innovative space that brings social service agencies together allowing them to deliver integrated programs. Today, the Shelldale Centre is home to eight agencies delivering programs and services that support and empower their community.

New Development Opportunities

We have grown since starting Shelldale. We have bought and sold properties and currently own a residential home in Guelph used by Family & Children’s Services of Guelph and Wellington County for youth in need. We are governed by a strong and visionary community board and thanks to our commitment to managing our resources well, have a total asset base of over $2.5 million. This financial stability combined with our passion for strong partnerships is allowing us to explore other opportunities to support community development.

Community Hubs 

Community.  It’s where people live, work and play.  It creates connections and life experiences that help shape who we are. It’s important to everyone.  Kindle's vision of a community hub is to embrace the strength of the community; the people who live there, and a variety of groups and organizations, to create a welcoming space that enhances the lives of all individuals living in that community.
