Working together to build a Communities Agenda

Poverty, homelessness, environmental degradation, inadequate child care, and gaps in social programs are resulting in worsening conditions in many communities. Community economic development offers a holistic approach to tackling these issues. In order to be successful, it needs a supportive public policy environment.

CCEDNet joins with others concerned about growing social and economic inequality in Canada. These are our recommendations for implementing a Community Economic Development approach to eliminating poverty and revitalizing communities. This is our case for change.

A Communities Agenda:

1. Build Fairer and Stronger Local Economies

2. Tackle Poverty and Homelessness

3. Invest in Sustainable Communities
