DisOrientation Guide to Niagara 



After the success of The Disorientation Guide to Niagara, Vol. 1 published in September 2019, OPIRG Brock has self-published a second volume on this community guide intended to showcase so many amazing local favourites, too often missed in mainstream promotions of Niagara. 


Whether you’re a new student to Brock or Niagara College, a tourist in the region, or you have grown up in the region, this guide has something for you! With an updated list of local businesses, social and cultural services, and community activist groups, we are so excited to showcase the continually changing and expanding work in our region!


We have also included an extensive list of annual dates and resources for supporting Indigenous communities, campaigns to promote, and self-education. The guide also includes information related to COVID-19 updates. While we know that this information is ever changing, we want the relevant links and resources easily available to all readers of the guide. We have also added a more extensive list of independent makers, artists, and vendors.
