This fall our Vibrant Communities Canada and Deepening Communities teams are collaborating on studying Neighbourhood-Based Strategies that Reduce Poverty. Over the course of three webinars, we are working with our partners to understand various models of place-based poverty reduction strategies that are identifying assets in targeted neighbourhoods, and building individual and community capacity. See where we are so far:
