Reimagining Public Participation

The City of Hamilton recognizes the importance and value of involving local residents to help shape City projects, policies and initiatives. Engaging residents on issues that affect their lives and their city is a vital component of a well-functioning democratic society and is a key priority of the City’s 25-year Community Vision.

Public engagement encourages participation, action and personal responsibility. It also helps to identify sustainable solutions and lead more informed decision-making through a wide range of perspectives, experience and knowledge. By sharing your voice, you are shaping our city and helping to make Hamilton an even better place to live, work and play.

We're Making Changes. Have Your Say and Help Shape City Decisions.

COVID-19 has changed the way we engage with our community, but it has not changed how important your feedback is to the decision-making process. Over the past two years, we have shifted engagement efforts online with virtual public meetings, live streamed events and digital tools to make it easier for you to share your thoughts with us.

As we continue to evolve our public engagement efforts, we are committed to seeking diverse opinions, experiences and information from our community to ensure you are informed and involved in shaping City decisions. Online engagement isn’t for everyone – that’s why we need to hear from you! Hardcopies of the survey are also available at local Municipal Service Centres, City Recreation Centres and Hamilton Public Library branches.

What We Heard

Thank you for your thoughts and experiences with City-led public engagement. Your feedback will help us better understand your preferences on how we communicate with and receive input from the community. Feedback collected from the community will be used in the development of a corporate framework and policy to help shape City-led engagement moving forward.
