Partners & Funders
The Community Information and Mapping System (CIMS) is a membership based collaborative, with operational costs provided by membership fees.
The CIMS is led by the Social Planning Council of Ottawa (SPCO). The SPCO has been a catalyst for sustainable social and economic development since 1928. Our mission is to provide the residents of Ottawa with the means to exercise informed leadership on issues affecting their social and economic well-being, through three areas of work:
- creating research with impact;
- facilitating research based community planning; and
- supporting community networks and organizations.
The CIMS has been developed with the collaboration of the following founding partners: Social Planning Network of Ontario (SPNO). The SPNO is a coalition of social planning councils (SPC), community development councils (CDC), resource centres, and planning committees located throughout Ontario. Each organization has its own mandate but all are connected in the cause of effecting change on social policies, conditions and issues. The vision of the SPNO is to be a strong, effective catalyst for positive social change by promoting social planning in Ontario. Child and Youth Health Network for Eastern Ontario The Child and Youth Health Network for Eastern Ontario is an innovative, action-oriented partnership of individuals and organizations who share a vision of better health for children and youth. The Network is cross-sectoral with members from health, social and community services, education, recreation and justice. This puts us in an excellent position to explore new ways to work together, to respond to emerging issues and disseminate related information and to advocate on the behalf of children, youth and their families. The CYNEHO is committed to helping children and youth grow up healthy, confident and secure - ensuring they are able to, or enabled to, realize their full potential and develop capacities needed to participate in and contribute to their communities.
We are grateful for the financial support of the following funders for the initial capital investment and for staffing resources for the development and early implementation:
