Neighbourhood Action Strategy – (NAS)

Hamilton’s Neighbourhood Action Strategy (NAS) was incubated in 2010 and began working in the 11 neighbourhoods identified in Code Red in order to address social, economic, and health concerns on aneighbourhood and will engage various partners across the 11researchers, community level in the city of Hamilton. As a resident-led, city-wide initiative, the strategy has evolved over the past five years to try to respond to the varying needs of these communities.

In October 2016, the NAS Steering Committee launched a “Reimagining NAS” project, managed through the HCF. This process seeks to get clarity and consensus about what the NAS should be, and what it should be for. The work is led by a team of seven residents and four neighbourhoods to help answer these questions. Once completed, this work will guide the future direction of NAS.

The following are 4 Community Conversations Events set up to encourage and engage the community for input.

Monday September 25th – 6 -9 pm at the Germania Club, 863 King St East.

The other 3 meetings locations are waiting to be confirmed;
