Neighbourhood Renewal Corporations
– A Way to Community Resilience?
Monday, January 27th, 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
Saanich Neighbourhood Place, 3100 Tillicum Rd
Dear friends and supporters of the Building Resilient Neighbourhoods project,
We’re very excited to be joined in the Capital Region by Molly McCracken, Executive Director of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives-Manitoba and Past Executive Director of the West Broadway Neighbourhood Renewal Organization (Winnipeg).
Molly will be sharing reflections and lessons from her experience as the past director of an inner-city neighbourhood development organization with a strong focus on housing, economic development, sustainability and food security initiatives (http://www.westbroadway.mb.ca/about) and her reflections on the role of community-based organizations and governments in fostering neighbourhood resilience.
The West Broadway Neighbourhood Renewal Organization is one of several similar organizations supported through the provincial Neighbourhoods Alive! Program in Manitoba that provides funding and resources to citizen led and government development organizations.
The presentation will be followed by a local panel discussion.
This session will be especially relevant for citizen leaders of neighbourhood development efforts, board members of community and neighbourhood associations and staff members from community centres.
