Since 2016, the Collective Impact Project (CIP) has been implemented across 17 Montreal neighbourhoods to fight poverty and social exclusion both locally and collectively.
This collective impact approach, which is unique to Montreal, is a major step forward in community development and the creation of structural responses to complex and urgent social issues.
The initiatives supported by the first phase were defined collectively and included the voices of citizens and various local stakeholders, such as community agencies and representatives from the boroughs, health care system, education sector, economic sphere, and more.
The second phase of the CIP will use the same methodology.
For Phase 2, all Montreal neighbourhoods will have the chance to take part in the CIP in one of the following development stages:
- Stage 1 | Planning
- Stage 2 | Implementing
- Stage 3 | Scaling
All Montreal neighbourhoods that want to participate in the CIP Phase 2 between 2021 and 2026 are invited to express their intent by October 15, 2021, unless they are ready to submit a proposal for stage 2, Implementing, by this date.
