Cities Deepening Community Membership Directory

Welcome to the Cities Deepening Community Membership Directory.

We have members across Canada who have joined this national movement of cities interested in investing in the social well-being of citizens who live, work and play in their communities. These members are working on developing neighbourhood plans to strengthen the sense of belonging, connection and citizenship.
