The VTAG program is a volunteer program formed by residents who wish to improve the appearance of their neighbourhoods by painting out graffiti on power poles along their streets.

Oaklands Community Centre has partnered with VTAG by making kits available at the Community Centre. Each kit contains 2 quarts of paint, a paint brush, stir stick, can opener, gloves and a scraper. Volunteers simply need to read and sign a safety checklist and indicate which area they wish to help remediate.
