Three very different Canadian cities; three beautiful stories of success.  

Discover how St. Albert, AB; Edmonton, AB; and Burlington, ON, have ventured into the world of Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) to improve connectedness and nurture a sense of belonging in their cities. 

At its core, ABCD is about identifying and leveraging the inherent gifts and strengths (assets) of individuals, paving the way for them to cultivate a sense of community and collaboration, and tackle the pressing needs and obstacles in their neighbourhoods.

Be inspired by the insights from these Local Lessons Learned and witness firsthand how ABCD has been instrumental in fostering meaningful connections and strengthening social ties in these remarkable Canadian cities.
