Title
Collective Impact in Progress: Collaborative Approaches to Addressing Minority Language Community Vitality in the Eastern Townships
Abstract
The Collective Impact (CI) model for organizing multi-stakeholder collaboration enables agents of change to move beyond the specific needs of each partner and their available resources to establish a common agenda and develop a clear roadmap for its achievement. The author explores the socio-economic characteristics of English-speakers in the Historical Eastern Townships within the context of youth retention and access to health and social services, and provides examples of how the Townshippers' Association has used the framework provided by the CI model to address these issues and work with community partners towards improving community vitality for English-speakers in the Historical Eastern Townships region.
