Asset-Based Community Development Toolkit

Building connected communities in Calgary Asset-Based Community Development Toolkit

The City of Calgary created the Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) toolkit in partnership with Tamarack Institute to support Calgarians in building connected communities. ABCD is an evidence-based approach that focuses on identifying and utilizing assets within the community to foster community connection. The purpose is to bring consistency and deepen knowledge for those who work with the community, such as organizations, staff, and/or volunteers.

Each ABCD module includes videos, tools and resources to help you consider and reflect on your local context. We encourage you to use the worksheets in each module to help you think about your ABCD process and build a plan, program, and/or activity that focuses on the community's gifts and assets. We acknowledge the systemic barriers that limit the full participation of residents in their communities and recognize that the implementation of ABCD in community building requires an intentional effort to identify and remove barriers to participation along with using an asset-based approach.
