Brockville’s residents can be found volunteering and supporting the community at every turn, and a few faces pop up regularly in the crowd. One of those faces is Dale’s, who you will find regularly volunteering at the local Food Bank and is one of the lead organizers behind Film Brockville. The group is behind bringing TIFF circuit films to Brockville; screening independent films at the Galaxy Cinema that would not otherwise make it into the local rotation. Dale has long been involved in the arts and culture scene in Brockville, having in the past taken a lead role in the Brockville Art in the City tour and local Jane’s Walk.
I’ve lived in Brockville for the majority of my life, around 55 years.
I’ve lived in Ottawa, Toronto, and Kingston. My wife prefers small town life to the big city.
“I look for a city that is easy to get around on by foot or on a bicycle and that is close to outdoor recreation such as hiking, cycling, and paddling trails. I look for lots of cultural activities and recreation opportunities, and a good library. Brockville has all of those things and the list of assets keeps growing.

Access to the St. Lawrence River. The “best kept secret” about Brockville is the free and easy access to the St. Lawrence through our waterfront parks and trails.
I stay involved by volunteering for many activities, including the food bank and Film Brockville.
I enjoy reading, watching films, cycling, and traveling.
Brockville has many cultural activities and a surprisingly diverse population. It is also close to many larger cities, so you can easily access those things that are not available here.
