Welcome to the Community Development Learning Initiative (CDLI) website.  CDLI aims to be a centralized space that brings residents, community development practitioners and supporters together to learn and act on shared issues around community building.  Since 2013 a number of community parters dedicated to supporting citizen engagement in Calgary have been working together to provide a platform to share and explore shared learning approaches and experiences that can inform our collective efforts. We hope you will explore this site and become a part of this learning journey…
