Reconciliation in Action: Towards Building Healthy Communities

GWAC invites you to the November 7th meeting, from 7-9pm
in the Learning Resource Centre, beneath the Library, at Britannia Community Centre

A Collective Impact Place-Based Strategy
by Our Place & Aboriginal Life in Vancouver Enhancement (ALIVE) Society

Our Place is a collaboration of residents, community organizations, local businesses & community leaders in Vancouver. Their/our vision is for the East Side to be a place where all children and families can thrive.

Success in life depends on a good start and research shows that children who start behind, stay behind. Our Place is committed to ensuring that Urban Indigenous Children will succeed in school & in life.  

More than any single influence on a  child or community, it is the confluence of all the enabling forces that truly fosters healthier kids & serves as a catalyst for positive community empowerment.  

Come to learn more about the program and how GW residents can partner and support this program.
