Description

Project Background

The Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM) Transportation Innovation Lab (TIL) project was started in March 2018. The TIL project will build on the significant work already undertaken in Cape Breton to identify transportation needs and potential opportunities to meet these needs, particularly for individuals living in poverty. The project is being implemented by Common Good Solutions, advised by a local advisory committee, and overseen by the provincial Poverty Reduction team.

Project Focus

The primary focus of the project is to connect under- and unemployed individuals in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM) with employment opportunities across the Island by identifying potential transportation solutions, without excluding other transportation needs. The intention of the project is to: verify needs; generate, evaluate, and test potential solutions; and determine a path to implementation. This will take place by engaging three stakeholder groups:

  • under- and unemployed individuals living in the CBRM,

  • employers who need more workers, and

  • community organizations and advocates.

Launch Gatherings

To begin this engagement, we will be hosting Launch Gatherings to bring all three stakeholder groups together in four communities in the CBRM: Sydney Mines, Glace Bay, Sydney, and New Waterford. These sessions will:

  • Provide a brief description of the Transportation Innovation Lab (TIL) project

  • Give participants a chance to share their experiences related to transportation and employment

  • Provide an opportunity to choose to participate in further project activities

Event Details

  • Coffee, tea, and refreshments will be provided

  • Childcare and transportation to-and-from the event will be available free of charge. Please confirm in advance if you or someone you know requires either (contact info below).


We would love for you to join us! If you have any questions, please contact Robert at robert@commongoodsolutions.ca or by phone at 1 844 407 0822.
