Oakwood Vaughan neighbourhood action partnership


Welcome to the Oakwood Vaughan Neighbourhood Action Partnership (OV NAP) website. The OV NAP is a broad-based community-led organization with a mandate to work together with residents, businesses, agencies and City representatives to improve neighbourhood well-being and active communication, coordination & service delivery.

This site is an active archive of the OV NAP. Here you will find records of past OV NAP meetings, related City of Toronto and Provincial reports, and practical tools and resources for civic engagement. We invite you to explore the site and utilize the resources found here.
