Event Details

In collaboration with the Tamarack Institute, the Ontario Trillium Foundation is hosting a free workshop in Toronto 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 issues of Youth, Diverse Communities and the Urban Environment. The self-reported mental health of Toronto’s youth (12-19) has declined: 70.9% perceived their mental health as being very good or excellent in 2014, a decrease of 6.4 percentage points since 2003 and lower than the national (73.9%) and provincial (72.3%) averages. Toronto is made up of an extremely diverse population, studies show that the city has more than twice the proportion of recent immigrants (8.4%) as Canada (3.5%). Additionally, 40% of Toronto’s youth who moved here within the last five years did so for better opportunities.

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
