The SDC of Cornwall & Area has 4 fundamental areas of focus:

Social Development Councils exist to build and strengthen communities. Their mission focuses on the social and economic impact on individuals, families and communities at large.

In order to address each of these areas of concern in the SD&G area, several standing committees and sub-committees have been formed by the SDC and many community agencies and volunteers. In each sub-committee, many different activities take place such as committee meetings, workshops, information fairs, training activities, lobbying, community development, project development and delivery, social issue awareness campaigns, and advocacy. All the grassroots committees are dedicated to creating social change and committed to “building stronger communities”.
