Making sure that people can become or remain connected to community makes good sense. It helps people lead richer lives and reduces the costs of social supports.
To strengthen connections to community, we are focusing our efforts in four areas:
- Connecting people with disabilities who want to work with meaningful employment opportunities;
- Ensuring that more seniors have the supports they need to age in their own homes;
- Decreasing the unemployment and underemployment of immigrants and new Canadians; and
- Increasing the number of people working together to improve their own neighbourhoods.
