Policy Development and Implementation in Complex Files: Lessons from “Vibrant Communities”

Published on 14/10/2004

This case study was written as part of the Special Studies series developed by the Canada School of Public Service.  It will be used as training material for federal public servants.  The Vibrant Communities story discusses the policy lessons for complex initiatives that involve multiple objectives and sectors.  Because it provides lessons from the community perspective, it contrasts with the first story in the series, by Ralph Smith, on the National Homelessness Initiative, which was written from a government perspective.
