Event Details

In collaboration with the Tamarack Institute, the Ontario Trillium Foundation is hosting a free workshop in Waterloo to discuss the promises and challenges of using the Collective Impact approach. The goal of the OTF Collective Impact investment stream is to solve complex problems in Ontario’s communities as an active partner in supporting initiatives across the province. Tamarack is one of Canada's leading organizations providing people with knowledge and resources to collaborate, co-generate knowledge and achieve collective impact on complex community issues. The workshop introduces the framework, examples of communities implementing the framework, and early application tools and the OTF approach to investing in collective impact. It has been designed to dive deeper into the specific issues your community is working to address.

Together, OTF and Tamarack will host a day-long session:

  • 9:00 a.m. Registration
  • 9:30 a.m. Workshop starts
  • 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. Lunch (provided)
  • 3:30 p.m. Workshop ends

The objectives of the sessions are to:

  • Introduce and create a shared understanding of what Collective Impact is and is not
  • Highlight the shifts in thinking required to successfully implement Collective Impact
  • Connect participants to one another and explore synergies
  • Support participants to assess the opportunity for Collective Impact to advance their work
  • Opportunity to assess the fit and readiness for your idea for the OTF Collective Impact grant stream
  • Explore the concepts of Belonging and Leadership. In Kitchener-Waterloo, only 31% of people expressed a strong sense of belonging and that percentage drops in the LGBTTQ+ community and with single parents. Studies show that community mental health and engagement drops when people don’t feel a sense of belonging.

Who should attend?

The workshops are intended for community groups that:

  • Desire new ways to lead, engage and transform their community
  • Want to learn about Collective Impact and how to work within a collaborative team
  • Are contemplating the start-up or renewal of a collaborative initiative
  • Are key supporter of community engagement and collaboration including NGOs, businesses, funders and national, provincial or local government
  • Want to know more about the funding support that OTF provides for Collective Impact practitioners
