The City is inviting all residents to help shape our new Community Safety and Well-Being Plan. The plan will outline strategies and actions aimed at fostering inclusive communities, where everyone in Ottawa feels safe, and supported by a robust social safety net.
We will seek public input on crime and safety, including on the root causes of these issues, examining factors such as education, health care, food, housing, income and social and cultural expression. City staff will present the final Community Safety and Well-Being Plan report to Community and Protective Services Committee and Council in the fall of 2020.
You can find more information on the Community Safety and Well-Being Plan online.
We want to hear about the community safety and well-being issues that matter most to you. Starting on Tuesday, March 3, residents will be able to provide input through an online survey at Ottawa.ca/CSWBP. The survey will remain open until Friday, April 3.
You can also register to attend one of four in-person public-engagement sessions across the city. Space is limited, so please register early. Sessions run from 6:30 to 8:30 pm and doors open at 6 pm.
