Building Resilient Neighbourhoods
The Building Resilient Neighbourhoods program increases the capacity of citizens to organize initiatives that build stronger relationships, improve local economies and increase self-reliance within their communities. Building Resilient Neighbourhoods is a collaborative initiative hosted by BC Healthy Communities.
This site includes background information on support to communities offered through the Building Resilient Neighbourhoods program including the Resilient Streets initiative. Resilient street projects focus on strengthening the connections between neighbours on a street or in apartments, townhouse complexes or condominium buildings.
