Connecting with Canadians


Community-Building: Seizing the Opportunity

by Neil Bradford

In Community Building: Seizing the Opportunity, a presentation to the Sudbury Social Planning Council in November by Neil Bradford, CPRN Research Fellow in Cities and Communities and Professor of Political Science, Huron University College, University of Western Ontario, Bradford shows how the five main ingredients of economic success today converge on cities: people [80% of Canadians live in urban areas]; investment; ideas; policy, and; security. Place quality is the key to getting the greatest benefit from these five "flows".
