Community & Community Development


Community is a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common. Community development is when community members work together to build stronger communities for the benefit of all. This can also be understood as Piliriqatigiinniq, the Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit (IQ) principle that promotes working in a collaborative way for the common good.
