The mission of the social planning council is to improve the living circumstances of individuals and community through social planning activities, coordinated research, collaborative engagement, and strategic action. Founded in 2008, the Cranbrook Social Planning Society formed to advance collaboration and common goals of community organizations. Our Vision of Cranbrook: An inclusive, collaborative, connected and empowered community. "Few, if any, social issues are uniquely social and/or simple enough to be addressed by one or two agencies or individuals. Therefore, building relationships across sectors is a critical component of successful planning and action...The more you engage the community, the more they will engage you." Etherington, C. "Social Planning Needs Assessment", 2011.
