Event Details

The CDI is a five-day event about community development as whole systems change. This is a practical, how-to lab on tools and methods for empowering communities and groups. The key to community development lies in people working together to meet changing social and economic needs. The methods in this course have been used around the world for over 40 years, and also with all ANC priority neighbourhoods in Toronto. 

Learn everything you need to know to launch and sustain community initiatives over the long term. ICA trainers have many years of experience.

All staff and community leaders of Action for Neighbourhood Change in Toronto took this intensive in 2007-10. The course is again available in Toronto, but this time at an 80% discount for United Way organizations

Or call ICA Associates Inc. 416-691-2316 and register at ICA Associates Inc.
