Building Community Capacity
Halifax is made up of more than 196 distinct communities, each exploring different avenues for growth. The Partnership collaborates with more than 20 organizations to build capacity and support initiatives to strengthen the community.
In 2012/13, we provided community economic development support to over 15 projects within the African Nova Scotia community. Our Preston area staff are now co-located with HRM Community Development in the North Preston Community Centre. It’s a natural partnership - both working to achieve a similar goal to build capacity in Preston area communities.
