Resilient Neighbourhoods Program

Building resilience capacity that empowers community organizations, businesses, and neighbourhood services to respond to the unique challenges faced by their communities.

On June 20, we launched a series of initiatives under this program, designed to:

  • Conclude the Resilient Neighbourhoods Program pilot, and launch a toolkit and grant stream that offers additional resilience tools and resources for community organizations
  • Amplify and align current resilience-building initiatives on an individual, community, and city-wide level
  • Build neighbourhood capacity to collectively prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies

Across the city, people and organizations are fighting to stay in the place they love, and are committed to bolstering their communities to address future changes.

Next steps

We will launch a series of initiatives under this program, designed to:

  • Support neighbourhoods to examine and reduce chronic issues
  • Support and amplify current resilience-building initiatives
  • Build neighbourhood capacity to collectively plan and prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies
