CDLI is a network that welcomes you! People who share the CDLI vision are engaged in or interested in learning about community development. CDLI learners are involved in some aspect of community building, and as such have some organizational affiliation.
CDLI participants are residents, community leaders, practitioners, funders and educators. CDLI embraces diverse participation across neighbourhoods, communities of interest such as ethno-cultural and faith-based communities, and other kinds of organizations. We invite you to participate in CDLI according to your interests, availability and capacity.
