The Ottawa Neighbourhoods Social Capital Forum (ONSCF) was established in 2011 to support the building of strong and vibrant neighbourhoods. The ONSCF has three components:
Engaging residents in community development projects to improve issues which matter to the residents;
Creating changes in programs, policies and systems to support the neighbourhood issues
Evaluating progress and sharing learning
The Social Planning Council chairs the ONSCF and is responsible for the research and evaluation supports.
