Many realities affect the contribution that our strategies make towards the all Winnipeggers having access to the basic requirements for a good life.
Some of these realities exist in our environment (the economic, political, social, cultural, demographic and philanthropic realities). Other realities exist within each of us (our interests, attitudes, values, needs, and capacities).
This environmental scan, completed in December 2008, provides a look at these realities. It offers our volunteers, staff, partners and all interested Winnipeggers with a current and comprehensive body of relevant information.
This scan can foster reflection, inform planning and enhance evidence-based decision-making.
It’s is a common starting point for working with others and stimulating collective action that will create long-term solutions and long-lasting and sustainable change.
