For over 15 years, the Social Planning Council of Ottawa (SPCO) has provided a platform for non-profit organizations working to promote inclusion. Our resources and expertise in resource development, financial management, communications, research, planning, implementation, partnerships, networking, and policy development provides the means for grassroots organizations to effectively address exclusion.
Three Inclusion Highlights
Improve Living Condition
Improve living conditions for people and communities facing exclusion.
Support the organizations and people addressing exclusion.
Advance Policy Change
build inclusive environments and advance systemic change.
Thanks to our focus on inclusion, residents are equipped with critical knowledge and information that drives positive community change. Individuals, families, and communities facing exclusion have increased access to resources and opportunities, and local change-makers are able to provide invaluable services to those who need it most.
