Community Orientation Backgrounder Template

In order to better understand your community or neighbourhood, this document provides steps designed to help you gather different types of information which could be useful in helping you initiate your role as a community builder. This information could be gathered by researching the community online or contacting key stakeholders and community members. Keep in mind that this is not as much about providing an in-depth statistical analysis. Instead it is about taking the “pulse” of your community by seeing it from a broader or systems perspective to begin thinking about the assets or strengths that already exist in the community as well as issues and opportunities that may be surfacing.
