Community Development in Canada. Document 1.
Lloyd, Antony John
This first survey of community development in Canada attempts to give a conspectus of activities past, in progress, and planned, in the communities of the socially and economically deprived Indians, Negroes, and Eskimos. It examines the extent of commitment of federal and provincial governments to community programs and projects, and comments on the degree of balance between local needs and expert planning. In support of its claims for the interrelationship between theory and practice, it outlines four basic elements in community development. Against these and the classification of the types of programs (integrative, adaptive, project), it examines the relevance and success of numerous organizations and institutions. It concludes that, on the whole, the programs are few in number, irregular in quality, and uneven in distribution. Furthermore, it judges the lack of a "developmental" policy as the limiting factor in the national community development programs and in the assessment of the common needs of the communities.
