The Community Resource Centre (CRC) was established in 1987 as a project of Women Initiating Responsible Change, a non-profit corporation. It was funded initially by a small Ministry of Community and Social Services-Community and Neighborhood Support Services Program grant. The CRC was incorporated as a non-profit corporation in September 1991 (Ontario Corporation Number 954868). Since that time the CRC has managed and delivered a variety of projects, developing many County-wide initiatives and services as well as local, neighbourhood services. We have always retained an interest in reaching and increasing access for rural and isolated communities. In the first new years the CRC received funding to operate a Mobile Toy and Book Lending Program (the Toy Bus) as well as to begin the process of establishing an electronic database inventory of human services.
