These priorities include transforming low-income neighbourhoods into vibrant communities with mixed incomes, closing the gap in educational achievement, using a neighbourhood-based model of care to improve health, and providing education and training geared towards employment.

To follow-through with these priorities, Living Saint John uses a collective impact approach that is structured and collaborative. This approach brings together members from all parts of the Greater Saint John community, including business, provincial and municipal government, the education sector, and non-profit and community-based organizations to work towards the common goal of a strong and vibrant Saint John community for all its citizens.

Check out the video below for a brief overview of the Strategy:
