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.
