This report addresses the ongoing challenge for CED organizations in Canada to maximize their long-term community benefit when multi-year funding for core organizational costs remains out of reach. To remedy this problem, the report recommends that the Canadian government develop and implement a federal CED Policy Framework and Neighbourhood Revitalization Program modelled after the Government of Manitoba’s CED Policy Framework and Neighbourhoods Alive! program.

It concludes by recommending, based on the Manitoba experience, how a CED Policy Framework and accompanying Neighbourhood Revitalization Program might be developed and implemented at the federal government level.
