Great News!

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our CSWB website. We encourage you to visit our page frequently as we move into the next phases of the Plan.

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

Key Milestone!

On October 27th, Ottawa City Council approved the Community Safety and Well-Being Plan.

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.

Engagement with residents and stakeholders played a major role in shaping the priorities of the plan. Feedback from the consultation with residents and stakeholders in 2020 and 2021 was analyzed and summarized in “What We Heard” reports below. We wish to thank you all for your invaluable commitment to this project.

Our plan’s proposed actions will 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 the approved priorities. Next steps will include developing detailed actions, a governance structure, a financial strategy, and an evaluation framework.
