Talking with communities about engagement

Welcome to the Calgary community association engagement site!



Stage 1 is now closed!

Thank you to everyone that participated in this first stage. I have reached out to the selected communities and will be starting the interview process in June.

On this site we will be exploring your community's experience in community engagement. The goal of the research is to create a community engagement toolkit that will support your community association when faced with urban planning and development projects needing engagement.

The project began by having participants complete the interview selection form. This form was used to determine which communities to involve in the Stage 2 interviews. If your community was not selected for Stage 2, we will look to have you involved during the Stage 3 workshops!

The intention for the research is to understand how information on a planning and development project was received and the conversations that took place in your community about that project. There are many different ways how information can be shared, as well as received, and it is important to find a balance to ensure that community members are given the equal opportunities to participate in public engagement as it relates to urban planning projects impacting their communities.

If you have a story to share, questions to ask the researcher, or would like to start a discussion, please use the tabs below to provide your feedback. All information gathered will be used for research purposes.

The research for this project has been approved by the CFREB (REB20-1552).

    Community doesn't engage

    by Bushell, 2 months ago

    Over time the community does not respond to invitations to engage and get involved.
