What becomes possible when the leadership and wisdom of an entire community intentionally works together to ensure the best possible future for all?  This is the question at the heart of a unique Collective Impact project in Kahnawà:ke – an Indigenous community just outside Montréal – that is mobilizing community and sector leaders to address social and economic challenges while nurturing a strong connection to its culture, identity and traditions.
