Join us with the Cities Reducing Poverty network for our 3rd annual national gathering of cities. This year, the Summit will be co-hosted by the City of Hamilton to expand the conversation and examine the role of business and multi-sectoral approaches to poverty reduction from across Canada.
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 Family Consultant works collaboratively with community partners to build a local teams, with the goals of identifying the key barriers families face, connecting families to the services they need and creating and implementing community plans that innovatively work towards addressing the barriers. Port Hardy does not yet have a formal poverty reduction strategy, however; the community has a range of municipal/provincial government and non-government services to support low-income families.
