We want to hear from you! – Phase 2 engagement
Everyone has a role to play in safety and well-being, and we want your feedback to continue to develop Ottawa’s Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) Plan. When we work effectively together as a community, we can address common priorities to ensure Ottawa is a safe, healthy, and vibrant community.
On October 28, 2020, City Council approved six local priorities that will be the focus of Ottawa’s first CSWB Plan: discrimination, marginalization & racism, financial security & poverty reduction, gender-based violence & violence against women, housing, integrated & simpler systems, and mental well-being.
The City is offering multiple engagement opportunities from January 18 to February 28 and we want your ideas!
Join the conversation! Please register as space is limited. Each session will discuss one of the CSWB priorities in a small group setting. Discussion groups are available in either English or French.
- Thursday, January 28 from 6 to 7 pm: Discrimination, Marginalization and Racism
