Action for Neighbourhood Change: A Guide for Neighbourhood Planning

Deepening Community, Publications, Paul Born

Working with local residents, not-for-profit agencies and public and private sector partners, Action for Neighbourhood Change combines local resources in new ways to develop creative, locally-based solutions for sustainable community development and neighbourhood revitalization.


Action for Neighbourhood Change took place between 2005-2007 in Surrey, Regina, Thunder Bay, Toronto and Halifax. This is one of a series of tools Tamarack has developed to aid communities during the key stages in the development of the ANC project. Tools are based on Tamarack’s experience and have been shaped and modified by communities to ensure they remain relevant to the local experience.
