Every workplace values mental health.

For the past 37 years, LakeCity has worked to develop an impactful presence in the Dartmouth community. We support people with mental illness to build on their strengths, take on responsibilities and access work experience, education and employment. We provide hope, support, respect and empowerment to our community, and through this, help each person reach their full potential.

We are a puzzle comprised of many pieces. We offer employment services, computer repair, cleaning and maintenance, therapeutic woodworking and services for seniors. We also have many other projects in the works for the upcoming year. Please stay tuned for details.

Our Ventures


LakeCity tinyhome

This summer, through the support of the Federal Government’s Canada Summer Jobs Program, we will be working with two students who will help us build a Tiny Home. The three-season, 20"x8" tiny home will be built on site over the course of eight weeks with support from the LakeCity Woodworking team and volunteers. The lucky winner will be announced on October 5th! There will also be a second place prize of a set of outdoor plastic chairs made from recycled plastics (valued at $2500) and a third place prize of a handmade wooden display cabinet (valued at $1725).

LakeCity Woodworkers

Our flagship social enterprise has a lot going on. Outside the beautiful solid wood furniture on display in our showroom, we have teams working daily on the production of wine racks for distribution across the continent and survey stakes for the construction industry. Most recently we've also added firelogs and firestarters, a new line of products for folks interested in supporting us but not ready for a life time piece of furniture.
