Come visit the Mowat Centre's pop-up design lab on Saturday March 24, 2018 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm to share your thoughts on how you define community, and how you would want to be involved in the development of community benefits initiatives in Ontario.
The Mowat Centre is currently working with the Ontario Ministry of Infrastructure and Cabinet Office's Policy Innovation Hub to develop a practical framework and guidance that will enable the provincial government to leverage its infrastructure investments through community benefits initiatives. Specifically, their work aims to inform how the government should define community, and guide the process of community involvement in these initiatives.
