Case Study: The Hamilton Healthy Birth Weights Coalition

youth-ciThis case study has been developed based on reports and updates shared by Vanessa Parlette, Public Health Services at City of Hamilton and key lead on the development of this collective impact initiative.


The Hamilton Healthy Birth Weights Coalition serves as a model for genuine collective impact. Since entering the Youth CI program in December of 2014 (a program jointly delivered by Innoweave and Laidlaw Foundation in partnership with the Government of Ontario), the coalition has successfully clarified their population-level outcome, developed an aligned Theory of Change, begun implementation efforts, and is seeing some early impact. This case study shares the story of how an urgent issue drove necessary players in a community to integrate their efforts toward clear outcomes.
