Get In Touch

As part of our commitment to hosting ABCD Canada, Tamarack will be making the seminal articles and resources of ABCD fully available via this website. 

Beyond this, we are keen to welcome and profile stories of ABCD in action from across Canada. We are keen to hear from our own members – practitioners of community building in neighbourhoods and communities across the country – so that their hopes and aspirations for this important body of work can be heard and considered.  

Please, email your thoughts and ideas to devon@tamarackcommunity.ca and together, we will chart a path forward to celebrate the simplicity and power of ABCD from its beginnings well into the future.





“Community is about the common life that is lived in such a way that the unique creativity of each person is a contribution to the other.”

—John McKnight

“There is nothing extraordinary about Asset Based Community Development (ABCD). It’s as ordinary as looking out for your family, your neighbours, your environment. Or extending a hand to people who are down on their luck, struggling or vulnerable. Or banding together with others to fix a common challenge.”

—Al Etmanski, ABCD Faculty, author,community activist, and social entrepreneur
