Report on Proposal Development At the Winnipeg Site
This document reports on the efforts of the Winnipeg Site in developing its proposal and coming together as a Site. It is based on a series of interviews and focus groups utilizing a common research protocol developed by the National Team. The purpose of the report is two-fold: to construct a narrative of the formation of the Winnipeg Site that can assist in identifying emerging issues that, once addressed, might strengthen the implementation phase of the project; and, at the same time, to highlight lessons in excellence that may assist other cities seeking to replicate the At Home/Chez Soi model. Five focus group sessions and 14 in-depth interviews were conducted. Twenty-four people were interviewed in focus group sessions and 14 people in in-depth interviews. A collaborative approach was adopted to the preparation, coding and analysis of the interviews and focus group results. Findings from the interviews and focus groups were paraphrased, summarized and synthesized.
