Creating Shared Prosperity: Cities that Lead Succeed

Publications, Vibrant Communities

Municipalities of all sizes can transcend the ills of poverty by adopting a vision of shared prosperity. They can use their policy levers and leadership position to create environments where people enjoy a high quality of life, innovation thrives and a robust social infrastructure leads to economic and social benefits for all residents.

This research paper is drawn from Vibrant Communities Canada- Cities Reducing Poverty- a pan-Canadian network of municipalities with multi-sector collaborative planning leadership tables- and is designed to inspire city administrators to consider how they too can build a prosperity agenda for their citizens.
