About BRIDGES SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT
Bridges Social Development (Canada Bridges) is a non-profit organization that was established and registered as a Canadian charity in 2003. Bridges was created for the purpose of capacity building and training of community, professional and youth leaders in communities where the organization had been invited.
The organization operates on the understanding that if we invest in people and their capacity to take care of themselves and address their own needs – while connecting them with the necessary resources and skill development – they will not only have the ability, but also the inner capacity and strength to make positive changes in their own communities.
Since 2008, Canada Bridges has built relationships and developed initiatives with many diverse communities in and around Calgary. Since 2011, we have focused on invitations to work alongside indigenous youth and young adults in Calgary as well as from other areas such as Morley and Siksika.
