Social Inclusion in the City of Hamilton
Sherri Torjman and Anne Makhoul,
The City of Hamilton is one of 17 municipalities in southern Ontario that will be co- hosting the Pan-Am Games in 2015. Hamilton made a decision to use the Games as a springboard for the development of a social inclusion strategy whose impact would be felt long after the conclusion of the Games.
The City hired the Caledon Institute to carry out research on the concept of social inclusion and to explore the practical application of this concept in other international sporting events. This paper sets out a wide range of possible actions that the City can take related to engagement, participation and employment.
