Vibrant Communities: Cities Reducing Poverty

The Foundation is pleased to highlight Tamarack Institute’s latest publication, Cities Reducing Poverty: How Vibrant Communities are Creating Comprehensive Solutions to the Most Complex Problem of our Times.
Through stories and a unique analysis by editor Mark Cabaj, Cities Reducing Poverty details the poverty reduction efforts of collaborative groups in six Canadian cities—Calgary, Montreal, Surrey, Hamilton, Saint John, and the Niagara region.
The cities are part of the Vibrant Communities initiative—a comprehensive, community-driven, cross-Canada, poverty reduction effort—and “are achieving remarkable results because they’re using creative, comprehensive approaches based on real, on-the-ground knowledge of —and experience of—the complex nature of poverty.”
