Origins of the CLN project

This project began in March 2001 as the result of a partnership between Human Resources Development Canada's Office of Learning Technologies through their Community Learning Networks program, Vancouver Community Network and many Vancouver not-for-profit agencies.

The pilot initiative will explore the effectiveness of using online interactive tools and public Internet access to support an 'assets based community development' process. Community participants will be residents of several mixed-income, high density, adjacent neighbourhoods in Vancouver. The project will help residents in their efforts to map community-based assets, improve the local economy, and develop plans for resolving critical issues in the community.
