As you know, municipalities and neighbourhoods are being confronted with a range of complex issues that are beyond the capacity of any one group or sector to effectively address when working alone. At the same time, individuals of all ages are experiencing the physical and psychological impacts of increased isolation. They are hungering for greater connection: a sense of belonging. 

At this year's national three-day gathering, Deepening Community: Resilient Neighbourhoods · When People Carewe will revive your hope in the power of residents and community. Discover the inspiration, connections, knowledge and tools that you need in order to connect, engage and mobilize residents. Deepening Community will inspire and support you in nurturing thriving, inclusive and resilient communities
