Responding to a request from the newer Neighbourhood Renewal Corporations (NRCs) in Manitoba, Neighbourhoods Alive! asked CCEDNet to facilitate knowledge transfer between old and new NRCs. Through interviews with both the newer NRCs on their challenges and the older NRC’s on their strengths, 15 profiles were developed.
NRCs take a holistic, community-led approach on neighbourhood renewal, incorporating community economic development principles wherever possible and allowing the community to drive planning and programming.
These profiles detail programs, processes, history, tips, and lessons learned on some of the most effective NRC practices.
