Great News! The City of Ottawa’s Community Safety & Well-Being Plan passes at Council.

On October 27th, Ottawa City Council approved the Community Safety and Well-Being Plan. We wish to thank you all for your invaluable commitment to this project.We are now one step closer to putting our collaborative vision into action.

The Community Safety and Well-Being Plan addresses local risks to safety and well-being at the community level in six priority areas: simplifying and integrating systems, strategies to address discrimination, marginalization and racism, financial security and poverty reduction, housing, mental well-being, and gender-based violence and violence against women.

Our plan’s proposed actions require consistent and ongoing collaboration with all levels of government, internal and external stakeholders, community groups and agencies and residents to mitigate risks and challenges associated with these approved priorities. Next steps include developing detailed actions, a governance structure, a financial strategy, and an evaluation framework. Please stay engaged with us as we move into the next phases.

Thank you for your feedback! “What We Heard” report - Phase 2 - Now Available! is now complete.

This phase of community engagement focused on gathering more detailed feedback to set objectives, strategies and actions on each of the six local priorities that will be the focus of Ottawa’s first CSWB Plan as follows: discrimination, marginalization & racism, financial security & poverty reduction, gender-based violence & violence against women, housing, integrated & simpler systems, and mental well-being.

Residents and stakeholders can sign up for the CSWB newsletter to stay informed.

Upcoming Dates

  • Spring 2021 - “What we Heard” report summarizing the Phase 2 consultation feedback - Now Available
  • Fall 2021 - Final CSWB report to be presented to the Community and Protective Services Committee (CPSC). Committee and Council will consider recommendations for the CSWB Plan.
  • Following adoption by Council, the Plan will be submitted to the Ministry of the Solicitor General.

The CSWB Plan will be evidence-based and will complement the work already underway across the city, while promoting solutions unique to Ottawa for using existing resources and assets in a more innovative, effective and efficient way. We look forward to working together to help create a city that is equitable and safe for all and improves everyone’s well-being.
