The City of Hamilton is working to develop its Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) Plan.

The City of Hamilton and community partners are working to develop a Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) Plan. Under the Province's Safer Ontario Act, 2018 municipalities are required to develop a Community Safety & Well-being Plan using the provincial government’s Community Safety and Well-Being Framework.

A Community Safety and Well-Being Plan aims to create the community conditions where:

  • Everyone is safe and has a sense of belonging
  • Everyone has access to services; and
  • Individual and families can meet their needs for education, health care, food, housing, income, and social and cultural expression.

Community safety and well-being cannot be addressed in isolation by any one institution, organization, sector, or individual; it needs all our collective action. Hearing a range of perspectives will give us the best possible chance to find creative, meaningful and appropriate solutions to complex issues facing Hamilton. Throughout the planning process the thoughts, ideas, opinions of our various institutions, service providers, communities, and the general public will shape the plan, priorities, and strategies and actions.

Tell us what you think about community safety and well-being by posting and mapping your responses to the following questions:

  • What a safe community looks like to you?
  • What can be done in your community to achieve a better feeling of safety?

Please explore the tabs below to post and map your responses. You will be able to comment until November 27, 2020.
