Community Safety and Well-Being Plan

Everyone has a role to play in safety and well-being, and the City of Ottawa is seeking your feedback as we develop Ottawa’s Community Safety and Well-Being Plan.

The plan, which is required under the Province’s Safer Ontario Act, 2018, will outline strategies and actions to improve safety and well-being for everyone in Ottawa. But to ensure a successful plan, we’ll first need to hear from you about the best ways for residents, organizations and government to work together to address well-being and safety issues in our communities.

You’ll find lots of places on this site where you can learn about the new Community Safety and Well-Being Plan, and to provide feedback into the process. We invite you to take our survey and have your say.

All City of Ottawa consultation meetings are cancelled as a precautionary measure to the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, we will not circulate the Community Toolkit to hold your own small group discussion. We will make every effort to make this community resource available when safe to do so and based on the advice of our health professionals.
