The Inter-Council Network Canadian Engagement on Poverty Issues Poll
The Inter-Council Network (ICN) is a coalition of seven provincial and regional Councils for International Cooperation. These member-based Councils represent over 400 diverse organizations from across Canada that are committed to global social justice.
The “Canadian Engagement on Global Poverty Issues” poll conducted by Vision Critical for the ICN in March 2012 is one component of a three-year national initiative designed to explore public engagement effectiveness on global poverty issues, and to build the capacity of public engagement practitioners in Canada.
Check out a blog post on the ICN Poll by the Executive Director of ACGC, Heather McPherson.
Inter-Council Network Update and Bulletin (July 2012)
The ICN has been hard at work finding out what practitioners, academics and the Canadian public think about public engagement in Canada. In March we wrapped up our Context Analysis project, which engaged hundreds of practitioners through an online survey, focus groups and interviews across the country. The results of this process have been used by the ICN to shape the next stages of our three year program, Exploring Public Engagement Effectiveness in Canada and will now be put into a report that will be shared with our members in the fall. A second research piece, a bibliography of relevant academic and institutional publications, has been compiled and will also be released in the early fall of 2012.
Another big moment for the ICN was a national public opinion poll that we conducted with Vision Critical. Over 1200 Canadians were asked to provide their opinions and understanding of global poverty issues, who should be addressing those issues and how. The full report was released on May 22 and was very well received by the sector. To view the report please visit the website at icnpoll.ca.
Going forward, the ICN will be launching a series Public Engagement Knowledge Hubs on a variety of different themes. This initiative will aim to generate knowledge towards identifying good practice in public engagement and will engage experts in the field. Please stay tuned for more details on the Knowledge Hubs in the coming months.
