Community Development Institute

Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, 252 Bloor Street West

While we are calling this "community development," in reality we mean it to be a gathering of budding activists and experienced practitioners from the whole universe of community work fields--community organizing, neighbourhood building, environmental advocacy, capacity building, social movements building, unions, cooperatives, social enterprises, etc.

This initiative is a collaborative effort on the part of people from the universities, colleges, community networks, labour organizations, anti- racism/anti-oppression networks, social justice groups, and others. We invite you to join us in creating a learning, sharing, networking opportunity in Toronto that we believe would be a benefit to your community or organization.

Our vision of this event includes morning and afternoon workshops, time for networking, evening social events, Friday forum with guest speakers, field trips to local sites, cultural celebrations, and more.

Join us!  Registration is open until April 11: $150 for 3 days; $110 for 2 days; $60 for 1 day.  Application for subsidy available for those with low or no wages
