The Scarborough Civic Action Network or SCAN is a network focused on mobilizing a civic voice for Scarborough. With a focus on those who are most marginalized, SCAN works to increase civic engagement of residents and increase collaboration across stakeholders so that collective action can be taken on issues impacting the community.
SCAN is a non-partisan, community-driven network. SCAN derives its action mandate from our annual community summit. SCAN is made up of community-serving agencies and residents and facilitates opportunities to enable community members to work towards our action priorities.
Such opportunities include:
- Holding capacity-building workshops
- Supporting civic engagement already happening in Scarborough
- Empowering residents to convene community members
- Enabling Scarborough residents to participate in formal processes such as budget decision-making processes, elections and consultations
