The City of Toronto is looking for our help as part of the development of its Community Partnership Strategy. The Community Partnership Strategy is an initiative that will help the City make sure that Toronto neighbourhoods have community services that work well for residents, and a strong community service sector to deliver them.
Together, with the Centre for Research on Inner City Health (CRICH) at St. Michael’s Hospital, they have gathered 50 ideas about the things that the City could pay attention to so that it knows how well community services are working for residents in Toronto neighbourhoods.
They are now asking Toronto residents, community service organizations, funders, businesses, and others to say which of these ideas are the most important. The City will use these opinions to help decide what work needs to be done to ensure Toronto has community services that work well.
Our input is invited. There are three ways to do this:
- A researcher from CRICH can come to your organization and to meet with a group for about 30 minutes. They would explain the study and ask participants to fill out a short questionnaire and rate the collected ideas.
- Attend one of the two ‘open houses’ that being held:
- Participate online by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Participation is set to run from February 22, 2011 – March 15, 2011.
