4 Tool Kits To Help Get Your Neighbourhood Strategy Started

Posted on June 5, 2017
By Tamarack Institute

Are you looking to get your neighbourhood more engaged with each other? Other individuals across Canada have wanted the same. While this may seem like an intimidating task, it is possible!  Some of the biggest neighbourhood strategies in Canada started with one person and an idea. 

We want to make your dream become a reality and that is why we have put together these four tool kits to help get your neighbourhood strategy off the ground. These tool kits encompass a wide variety of strategies to encompass the diversity of every neighbourhood. While neighbourhood strategies have similar goals, no two are the same because no two neighbourhoods are the same. Different neighbourhoods have different needs, goals and people and thus need to be addressed in not the same way.

  1. Resilient Neighbourhoods Toolkit from Resilient Neighbourhoods - Victoria, BC
  2. Neighbourhood Association Guide from NeighbourGood London – London, ON
  3. Neighbourhood Engagement Strategy Toolkit from Abundant Communities Edmonton – Edmonton, AB
  4. A Guide to Neighborhood Planning from Tamarack Institute and Action for Neighbourhood Change 

If you already have a neighbourhood strategy, we highly encourage you check out our Local Deepening Community Initiatives and Neighbourhood Strategy Leaders brochures to learn how we can help grow your new strategy.
