Connecting Community

Small actions add up. Together we can further build Medicine Hat's welcoming and inclusive small-town feel.

Connecting Community is a community initiative designed to enhance our sense of community and pride of place. Meet other Hatters through short videos, conversations and events, as well as through personal actions. Connecting Community is about participating together, learning about and from one another, and discovering our connections.

Connecting Community reminds us that we're all Hatters.
