This book explores the efforts of collaborative groups in six different Canadian cities where each one is guided by a desire to employ a comprehensive approach in tackling the interconnected cause-and-effect variables of poverty. It showcases case studies from these communities that provide a rich pool of learning about the multiple and complex factors underlying poverty, as well as the characteristics, challenges, and opportunities of reducing it through comprehensive and integrated responses.

Vibrant Communities Canada

By Vibrant Communities Canada

Vibrant Communities supports cities and local leaders to develop and implement large-scale change initiatives through two learning networks, Cities Reducing Poverty and Cities Deepening Community. A Vibrant Community can be created once the human, social and economic cost of poverty are significantly reduced. Together, these cities/regions aspire to reduce poverty in 100 cities.
