Welcome to Tapping the Groundswell (TTG), a project of the Powell River Diversity Initiative. TTG was a seven-month project launched to create a proposed Community Social Plan, intended to pave the way for those developing and implementing social policy in this region. Thus, this document is a set of recommendations—based on community-wide consultation, engagement processes, and extensive research—which may guide policy-makers as they set to work establishing concrete targets and actions.
Lyn Adamson is the Executive Director of the Powell River Diversity Initiative and the Powell River Employment Program. Lyn is a tireless advocate and community leader who brings many years of experience and dedication to the non-profit world, where she and the organizations she leads strive to serve the citizens of Powell River in a wide variety of ways every day.
The research team for this project included Julia Adam, Lyn Adamson, Mark Brown, Mike Brown, Jessica Colasanto, Lisa MacDougall, Janet Newbury, Laura Wilson, Drewen Young and John Young.
There are literally thousands of excellent sources of information and resources on a wide array of social planning issues. We’ve provided a few links and signposts that we have found in the hope that some might be useful to you as you learn more about the wide world of social planning. We’ll add more resources here as the project proceeds and as we hear from the community about what is most helpful.

This project is now completed.
