Hi, my name is Bill Li. I live with my wife Rachel and our two children in Oakville, a beautiful town in the Greater Toronto Area. While we love our neighbourhood, it can be hard to connect with neighbours since everyone is busy and on different schedules. Just as it takes a village to raise a child, so does it take connections to raise a neighbourhood. We want to assist neighbours to connect, share, and help each other. On January 1st, 2018, we launched GoNextDoor.ca as a social marketplace for neighbors to offer and request services from each other.
Our Vision: Turn neighbourhoods into villages
Our Mission: Provide neighbours a great social marketplace to connect, share, and help each other.
Below are some services which we hope will interest and even inspire you to join GoNextDoor.
Homemade Food Catering:
Food brings people together. Every family has a few special recipes passed down from generation to generation. By ordering food from your neighbors, you will get healthier, tastier, and specialty homemade food at reasonable cost close by. Unlike in a restaurant, you may get to know the interesting story, culture, and personal connections behind the food. Plus, you will have something to talk about the next time you run into your neighbors. As the cook, you can share the joy of a favorite recipe with your neighbors and get to know them better. You can prepare food whenever convenient. This is your chance to make some extra money doing something you enjoy while trying out your entrepreneurial skills without the headache of setting up a formal business.
Need someone to clean your house? To organize the house? To fix a leaking sink? You don’t know who to trust. You may worry about the unexpected high cost. You may wish you are just as handy as your neighbor Dave. You may feel awkward to ask your neighbors. Does he have the skills? Is she willing to help me? Is he available? How much should I pay her? We know your concerns because we have those concerns as well. Now with GoNextDoor you can easily see which neighbors can help, at what cost, their availability, ratings, and friendly reviews from other neighbors.
