The Pan-Canadian Community Development Learning Network (PCCDLN) was a two and a half year project of the Canadian Community Economic Development Network (CCEDNet) that examined and promoted learning about how comprehensive, community-based CED initiatives contribute to social inclusion.
There were seven complementary components of the overall project:
- A report on Socio-Economic Indicator and Mapping Resources that presents how indicators and mapping can be used to inform and strengthen local initiatives.
- A Profile of Effective Practice
The first stage of the Profile was a survey of 78 comprehensive, community-based initiatives that explores their approach through CED and social inclusion lenses.
The second stage of the Profile produced case studies of innovative local efforts that strengthen social inclusion.
