What is the Hub?

The Hub is an inclusive gathering space which nurtures healthy connections, allows relationships to flourish, and makes the community a better place. 

The Importance of Community.

The HUB at Knox is dedicated to fostering community connections through active engagement with our neighbours. We partner with community members, groups, businesses and other organizations to host activities and events which help reduce isolation, promote health & wellness, and contribute to the enrichment of our neighbourhood.
