Daniel McIntyre/St. Matthews Community Association
DMSMCA is a community-driven not-for-profit Neighbourhood Renewal Corporation serving the Daniel McIntyre and St. Matthews (DM/SM) neighbourhoods in Winnipeg's inner city. Our mission is to empower the community of DM/SM to achieve social, economic, cultural and environmental well-being. We have a vision of a DM/SM community which is stable, healthy and safe, a neighbourhood that is diverse, welcoming, vibrant, clean and self-sufficient.
Established in 2007 and incorporated in 2008, DMSMCA is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of DM/SM residents, organisations and stakeholders.
Our mandate is to plan and coordinate neighbourhood renewal efforts through Community Development and Community Economic Development. We work with residents and other stakeholders on various issues to reduce poverty and support the social, cultural and economic renewal of our neighbourhoods, focusing our work primarily on the following six areas – Housing; Community Building, Wellbeing and Safety; Greening and Environment; Community Involvement and Outreach; Recreation and Youth; and Community Economic Development. We operate on the principles of Community Economic Development (CED).
