  • Poverty and Community Engagement of Marginalized Peoples
  • Homelessness and Adequate Housing
  • Inclusive Learning Environments
  • Inclusion for Disabilities
  • Immigrant Children and Youth
  • Community Communications, Arts & Culture and sports
  • Mentoring Leadership in our community
  • Employment (Wages, Fair Income, Disabilities)
  • Accessibility in Uptown Waterloo
  • new Canadians/Faith Communities/Facilities and Spaces
  • Growing Older
  • Moving Ahead with What We Have

Since April 08 there have been three gatherings to discuss the action people have taken and to plan further action. This has been a n opporutity for community members to reflect, share, encourage and challenge each other to follow through on the various ideas that have emerged in discussions. A range of activities have been started as a result of the Community Action Forum.

The Forum will include an update on action taken since April 18, 2008 and will then open the space to new issues and ideas that will frame the action for the coming year.
