Our community is well known for its caring and collaborative spirit and for its successes in improving life circumstances for many individuals and families. Partnerships among government, business, community organizations and residents have deepened over the years to achieve greater impact. Despite our efforts, however, our community continues to face complex challenges that threaten the quality of life for too many individuals and families and thus the future stability of our City and Province.
Living SJ is a partnership of government, community and business leaders who have agreed to work together in a new way that will substantially improve life outcomes for all residents, particularly those with limited opportunities, resources and assets. It is our new approach to poverty reduction.
This document outlines the four social priorities that Living SJ will focus on for the next five years, how these priorities were determined and the initial actions underway to achieve solid solutions. .
