Meeting the Needs of Youth-at-Risk in Canada: Learnings from a National Community Development Project.

This report details a collaborative initiative between Health Canada, provincial/territorial governments and five sites across Canada including forty-two communities. The sites were assisted to undertake community development processes to address issues facing youth at-risk. A set of learnings and a model for community development for this target group was developed which can be transferred to other communities.
