New Tec Connects Program

The Town of New Tecumseth continues to be here for our residents, and we are adapting to the changing times and needs of our community as a direct result of the COVID-19 global pandemic.  As such, we launched our New Tec Connects Program to support the evolving needs of our residents and our community as we work through this difficult time.  The New Tec Connects Program includes virtual fitness and activities, partnerships for grocery delivery and food drives.  As we continue to work together through this challenging time, we will continue to do all that we can through our organization as well as out New Tec Connects Program to help our residents through this unprecedented time.
