  • About

    Launched in 1972, under the Dartmouth Activity Centre, LakeCity Works officially became a registered charity in 1982. Originally founded as a drop-in centre for clients of mental health support services, LakeCity Works has always been deeply rooted in therapeutic woodworking, community support and social innovation. At the time, clients identified work as an important means to reintegrating the community, and so, a wood shop and retail business were developed alongside woodworking activities. Our organization has seen a continuous evolution over the years, evolving from LakeCity Industries in 1982 to LakeCity Employment Services Association in 1986 and most recently, to LakeCity Works in 2018. At every turn, we have been leaders and innovators in the field of mental health – supporting individuals living with mental illness wherever they may be in their recovery process.
