Vibrant Communities Canada is a Tamarack Institute Practice Area that will bring together 100 cities who are creating comprehensive poverty reduction strategies
As one of Tamarack Institute's two issue-based Practice Areas, we seek to engage the five Idea Areas on a deeper level. In both Vibrant Communities and Deepening Community we convene and host online learning communities where people who are working within that field can gather, learn and share with each other.

The Poverty Reduction Network was the initiator of the Poverty Reduction Strategy which was approved in December 2008 by City Council. This was done in consultation with the community and community partners to be developed in time to influence the 2010 budget. However, the current municipal government has not supported the continuation of the strategy, and the network is deciding on next steps to help advance the poverty reduction agenda without a formal strategy.
The Niagara Prosperity Initiative uses a research-based approach to address the root causes of poverty, allocating resources where they will have the greatest effect. While some projects are designed to meet the immediate needs of individuals living in poverty, the Niagara Prosperity Initiative is also focused on longer-term strategies which require stronger partnerships and improved coordination and planning across the public, private and voluntary (not for profit) sectors and among stakeholders.
We help grow local poverty reduction efforts by building networks and increasing opportunities for collaboration. Every sector of the community including business; city, provincial and federal governments; social service sector; labour and private citizens have joined Vibrant Surrey.
We incubate community economic development projects that make a real difference in people's lives.
We listen to and learn from all voices in our community.
