Since it’s release in 2015, Paul Born’s book, Deepening Community: Finding Joy Together in Chaotic Times has become a national best-seller. As growing levels of loneliness and isolation are reported amongst people of all ages across the country, the need to discover new ways to foster connection between neighbours has never been greater.

Those keen to deepen the experience of community for themselves and their neighbours will be inspired by the four pillars for deepening community that Paul outlines in this book. Rooted in input and research from more than 500 community-builders across Canada and beyond, this book provides a compelling case and clear framework that neighbours and other community-builders can use to restore the social connections we need to help us effectively respond to community challenges; seize emerging community opportunities; and harness the wisdom and skill of citizens to restore resilience to our neighbourhoods and communities.
