James Bay Community Project

James Bay Community Project is a non-profit community organization helping seniors, youth and families by providing counselling services, community support and volunteer services.

JBCP shares its building with several tenants providing services to the community: JBUPCC (Urgent and Primary Care Centre), LifeLabs, HerWay Home, and other independent providers of health services.

YOU + Generosity x Selflessness = Kindness


Our volunteers work in partnership with Canada Revenue Agency to provide the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program. It is limited to those with a lower income and who have a simple tax return. 

This program runs annually in the spring. This year the clinic will run March 1 to April 28, 2023. More info to come soon! 

Digital Dive-In is our FREE tech education program for seniors to help them learn how to use portable technology (smart phones, tablets or laptops) and build up computer literacy to help stay in touch with family & friends, maintain independence and more.

Due to the Public Health Orders relating to COVID-19,  The Project has updated its safety plan in the following ways:

  • Please do not visit if you feel unwell or are experiencing any Covid-like symptoms.
  • Mask wearing: while it is now a personal choice, please continue to be kind and thoughtful towards others. Prior to meeting with others in our building, we ask that you discuss in advance your comfort level on mask wearing and to kindly respect each others’ preferences.
  • The limits on the number of people permitted in various spaces in our building are removed.
  • Access to our programs is by pre-registration only. Proof of vaccination is still mandatory for program participation.
  • Visitors to our building will no longer be required to exit the building using the back door, they can exit through the front doors.
