Upcoming Multi- Day Events

CI 3.0_FB POST.png Collective Impact (CI) 3.0 is a three-day intensive workshop for practitioners in early stage, mid stage and later stage community change work. The workshop will explore the latest in the practice of collective impact from experts, practitioners and early adopters of the work. This workshop is best suited to those who have an interest and some basic knowledge and experience with collective impact and are eager to tackle the challenging but critical task of moving the needle on complex community challenges like poverty, homelessness, environmental change, early learning and active living.

Neighbourhoods, The Heart of Community: Mobilizing for Impact is a unique national learning event, inspired by the wisdom of Paul Born's book Deepening Community, that brings together the most innovative and inspiring examples of neighbourhood action at its best.

This event invites us to accelerate our effectiveness by learning from one another and imagining how we can ensure our collective work has greater impact. Participants at this event will be introduced to effective programs and resources that are successfully reconnecting neighbours, deepening community and advancing positive change on a range of complex issues.
