    We are launching a multifaceted stakeholder engagement strategy. The strategy outlines a new approach to consultation and engagement for the Official Plan. The approach focusses on meeting residents in their communities and ensuring underrepresented voices have a meaningful opportunity to participate in the new Official Plan.

    One of our new tactics is to offer more online opportunities to provide feedback. Please find below a quick poll helping us identify the best ways to engage you in the new Official Plan.
