Vibrant Communities releases 2002-2010 evaluation report

Yesterday, national sponsors of Vibrant Communities Canada released a report of a nine-year experiment that demonstrates the positive impacts of an innovative and collaborative approach to fighting poverty that is driving individual benefits, neighborhood changes and large scale community poverty reductions.
The report, Vibrant Communities Canada 2002-2010 Evaluation Report, highlights key results and offers deeper understanding of the critical success factors, effectiveness and patterns identified through the Vibrant Communities experiment.
Vibrant Communities, launched in 2002, is an initiative of the Tamarack Institute for Community Engagement, the Caledon Institute of Social Policy and The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation. Its approach emphasizes collaboration and consensus building across sectors; comprehensive thinking and action; building community assets; and a commitment to long-term learning and change.
