The NERC seeks to ensure that the voices of residents are heard and represented through decisions that affect and impact the community.
Facilitate change in negative attitudes that affect the productivity and growth of individuals, groups and the community as a whole. Ensure accountability by communicating on activities and reporting on decisions made by the community for the community.
All members of the NERC have an equal voice in deliberations.
The consensus is the chosen method of decision-making amongst members of the North Etobicoke Residents Council, that includes discussion, amendment, and negotiation, to achieve a majority.
In addition to residents, the NAP (Neighborhood Action Partnership) Table is the main supporting body for the NERC, and provides human as well as material resources to the NERC.
The North Etobicoke Residents Council works with the NAP Table to ensure sufficient resources and supports are allocated through the City and agency stakeholders to advance NERC directed work.
The NERC determines local priorities through consultation with residents and other stakeholders from the various NIA's (Neighborhood Improvement Associations).
