ANC Begins in Scarborough Village

Community Story by Anne Makhoul

Scarborough Village was selected for Action for Neighbourhood (ANC), a pan-Canadian project based in five cities. ANC’s objective: to help community residents work together to improve their neighbourhoods. A 14-month initiative, ANC will operate from February 2005 to March 2006, affording government partners an opportunity to learn about how they can support community renewal.

Anne Makhoul describes how Scarborough came to be the place of social housing for low-income wage earners, residents on social assistance and immigrants. She explains how there is increased poverty in Scarborough as well as an increased immigrant demographic. Makhoul also explains how Scarborough Village was chosen to participate in ANC, and outlines the community’s strengths and concerns.
