ANC in BC Selects Bridgeview
Quartiers en essor choisit Bridgeview en C.-B.
 
Anne Makhoul October 2005
 

The Action for Neighbourhood Change (ANC) project, based in five cities across Canada, enables community members to help one another to make their neighbourhoods better places to live.  This 14-month initiative, operating from February 2005 to March 2006, also offers government partners an opportunity to learn more about how they can support neighbourhood renewal.


The location for the Surrey ANC project is the Bridgeview neighbourhood, chosen in part because of the already strong sense of community felt by its residents, and because it met the criteria of having a balance between needs and assets, as defined by the selection committee. 

 

 

L’initiative Quartiers en essor, qui a cours dans cinq villes au Canada, permet aux populations locales de s’entraider afin de faire de leurs quartiers des milieux de vie plus agréables où vivre. Cette initiative d’une durée de quatorze mois, se déroulant de février 2005 à mars 2006, permet également aux partenaires gouvernementaux d’approfondir différentes façons de soutenir la revitalisation de quartier.

 

Le quartier de la Ville de Surrey où se déroule l’initiative Quartiers en essor est Bridgeview. Il a été retenu en partie à cause du sentiment profond d’appartenance communautaire de ses résidantes et résidants et aussi parce qu’il satisfaisait au critère d’équilibre entre besoins et actifs tel que défini par le comité responsable de la sélection du site.

Strengthening the Canada Pension Plan: Take it to the public

Ken Battle, Sherri Torjman and Michael Mendelson, November 19, 2013

The Canada Pension Plan (and its twin Quebec Pension Plan) is one of our most important social programs and is an exemplary model in the world as a fair, solid and secure retirement income plan.
