About

The purpose of the City Convenor Community of Practice (CoP) is to bring together committed  members of the Cities Reducing Poverty nework with Vibrant Communities Canada staff every month to share presentations, information, and updates that are aimed at strengthening our members' local poverty reduction efforts. Membership in the CoP is restricted to only include individuals who are affiliated with a local poverty reduction roundtable or initiative that is a committed member of the Cities Reducing Poverty network. If you're not sure about your eligibility to join this CoP please email alison@tamarackcommunity.ca.
