Employment. NECRC is dedicated to increasing the level of employment in the North End. NECRC achieves its goals through the NECRC - PATH Resource Centre and the Employment Development System Committee (EDS).

Community Development. One of the key principles of NECRC’s development philosophy is to “empower local people in the governance of the community economic development organization and of the community as a whole”. One way to achieve this is to assist in developing and sustaining neighbourhood organizations and networks.

Wellness Centre. NECRC has been working diligently in partnership with the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, YMCA/YWCA of Winnipeg, SPLASH Childcare, the Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre to redevelop the old North End YMCA site as a community facility. It is intended that the Centre will be a community-driven initiative, designed to reflect resident demands for a local gathering place, that focuses on wellness, operates according to community standards, and is inclusive and accessible to all.

Safety. NECRC is involved in a number of safety initiatives aimed at crime prevention and harm reduction. These include engaging community, building networks and partnerships, and developing/participating in innovative safety projects and programs.
