The Social Planning Council of Sudbury is an independent, non-profit organization that works in partnership with individuals, community agencies, government, business, labour, and the institutional sectors to improve quality of life for all residents of Greater Sudbury.
Founded in 1989, our work in the community is visible in many different ways. Beyond research, we’re at the table and on the ground understanding and finding solutions to issues that affect our community. We are dedicated to building and strengthening our community.
We participate with community organizations to develop new ideas and respond to community needs, engage in social research and strive to identify emerging social issues while working across sectors to facilitate community planning processes that respond to those issues.
