About Inspiring Communities

Inspiring Communities is a recognized leader in equity-centered systems change in Atlantic Canada. We recognize that our current systems and institutions don’t work for the people who need them most. We build collaborative relationships, develop skills and foster social experimentation (e.g. through social labs) to change these inequitable systems. We work in three communities: Digby, Dartmouth North and Northside Cape Breton. We engage in reflective evaluation practices to learn from our experiments, integrate that learning into our work, and share what we’ve learned through our regional and national networks.
