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.

Hamilton’s Community Safety and Well-Being Priorities

Community partners identified six local priorities for further investigation and collaboration. Community and service provider engagement in the development of this plan will focus on gathering more detailed feedback to inform desired outcomes, strategies and targeted actions on five* of the six priorities:

  • hate incidents
  • violence
  • mental health and stigmatization

  • substance use*
  • homelessness and access to affordable housing
  • access to income

*Community engagement and service collaboration is happening through Hamilton’s Drug Strategy. To find out more about what Hamilton is doing to address substance use visit www.hamilton.ca/drugstrategy.
