With the growing sense of disconnect and social isolation happening in communities across Canada and the lack of civic participation in our towns and cities, we need to declare community essential. We believe that Deepening Community is the answer.
This guide has been developed to support community champions, concerned citizens, municipal staff and decision-makers such as mayors and elected officials to build the case to deepen community and make your community essential.
There are five sections that will get you thinking about developing your own local Neighbourhood Strategy.
- Assessing Your City’s Commitment to Deepening Community
- 10 Really Good Ideas
- 10 Inspiring Stories
- 10 Really Useful Resources
