Dynamic neighbourhoods are the foundation of strong cities and municipalities.  Engaged citizens and residents are essential in creating strong neighbourhoods.  Community-based organizations play an important, catalytic role in making positive community change possible. 

Across Canada and beyond there are inspiring examples of what can be done when neighbours work with community organizations, associations and governments.   There are also inspiring examples of how policies have been implemented that support and encourage neighbourhoods to build strength and foster creativity.  Today, our shared challenge is to learn about -- and from -- these innovative examples so that they become the reality in every community. 

Join us in Hamilton from June 8th – 10th, 2015 at our dynamic, interactive national gathering as we think and act together and advance the discipline of neighbourhood-building that is at the centre of a desired shift in our collective thinking.
