Vibrant Communities Canada supports cities and local leaders to develop and implement large-scale change initiatives through three learning networks:
Communities Ending Poverty is a network of 330 municipalities represented by 80+ regional members working collaboratively to end poverty in their communities.
Cities Deepening Community is a network of 67 cities seeking to strengthen neighbourhoods and 25 cities developing community plans to grow citizen engagement, civic leadership and a sense of belonging.
Communities Building Youth Futures is a five-year strategy to work with 13 communities to develop system-wide solutions for youth as they build and act upon plans for their future.
Community Climate Transitions is building a network of communities that are committed to tackling climate change through a multi-solving approach that advances social, environmental and economic goals simultaneously.
These communities support change-makers to regularly interact with and learn from their peers to end poverty in their communities and strengthen connections between citizens.
Our belief is that when we are effective in strengthening community capacity to engage citizens, lead collaboratively, deepen community and reduce poverty, our work contributes to the building of peace and a more equitable society.
