Community engagement

Community engagement is “people working collaboratively, through inspired action and learning, to create and realize bold visions for their common future.” Tamarack Institute for Community Engagement.

Community engagement is a key health promotion strategy that strengthens the capacity of people to address shared health concerns and work together for positive change.

Community engagement can influence local policy-making, increase services that are accessible and equitable and support effective networks between sectors.
