This year marked a new partnership between the collective impact project and la pépinière | espaces collectifs: vivace-pic
Through the Vivace-PIC program, La Pépinière has been helping neighbourhoods launch their projects to improve the quality of life or create public spaces.
The program consists of a bank of support hours that the 17 neighbourhoods receiving CIP support can use voluntarily. This initiative creates a bridge between the community expertise of the neighbourhood roundtables and the tools developed by La Pépinière | Espaces collectifs.
During the first year of this program, La Pépinière helped 7 CIP neighbourhoods implement their projects. 4 new public spaces were created and 4 neighbourhoods received support to develop their vision and future development models.
