Encourage local leadership
Do you believe in the value of local leaders? Consider this: without the people who actively work to make your neighbourhood a better place, volunteer their time, recruit others to put initiatives in place, organize activities or raise awareness about important issues, very little would get done. These local leaders are often the unsung heroes in our communities. To find out more about developing local leaders, visit the Canadian Community Leadership Network’s website and the Ontario Government’s community leadership fact sheet.
