Charlotte County Community Inclusion Network (CCCIN) hosted 7 community consultations from October to December 2011 across the region, involving over 75 participants. Meetings were held at different locations on the mainland, Deer Island and Grand Manan, and a meeting with community members from Campobello was held by telephone conference. The objectives of the consultations were as follows:
To identify community assets and strengths in relation to poverty reduction
To identify opportunities to build on those assets to help reduce poverty in the region
As a collaborative group, Vibrant Abbotsford works with a variety of partners, including all levels of government, social and voluntary organizations, faith-based organizations, local businesses, funders, and the people of Abbotsford
This is a multi-sectoral community collaborative project, coordinated through the United Way and the City of Kingston. Working Groups in the strategic focus areas will report to a Poverty Reduction Group. The initiative is new and, over the coming year, will focus on developing action plans and evaluation processes.
A community free from poverty, where all people live with dignity and health and have:

Employment with good wages
Access to education and training throughout their lifespan
Opportunities to reach their full potential using their energy, creativity and talents
Opportunities to be involved and included
Support for their changing needs from childhood to old age
Our goal is to create and help implement a comprehensive plan to prevent, reduce and ultimately end poverty in Alberta. To do this, ICFSP will act as a hub for the exchange and gathering of information from across the province and the nation in order to:
Promote a provincial poverty reduction strategy
Develop policy on poverty reduction
Build inter-governmental networks
Advocate for those living in poverty
