About Us

INCommunities is the new visual brand for Information Niagara which has been in the business of connecting people and community services for more than 40 years. From humble beginnings in Niagara Falls, this St. Catharines-based non-profit delivers a number of exciting programs that help members of the communities they serve. Having earned a well-deserved reputation as the “go to” agency for information that can help both client and counsellor alike, INCommunities is led by Executive Director Tammy Dumas and a strong volunteer Board of Directors who have charted a path for continued growth and continued excellence of service for the organization.
