Community Safety & Well-Being Planning Workshop

The Community Safety and Well-Being Planning workshop, designed for municipal administrators and community partners, teaches the knowledge, skills and practices necessary to develop a local community safety and well-being plan. Ontario’s Bill 68, the Community Safety and Policing Act, mandates all Ontario municipalities to develop and implement a Community Safety and Well-Being Plan by 2021.

The developer of the Community Safety and Well-Being Planning workshop, Hugh C. Russell, was a principal architect behind the province’s community safety and well-being planning strategy. He brought to this initiative more than 50 years of community development experience that spans the globe and close to 40 years’ experience working closely with police, other emergency services and military forces across North America.

Who Should Attend

The Community Safety & Well-Being Planning workshop is designed for teams (three to four people) of municipal administrators and their community partners who will be organizing community safety and well-being planning in their own communities.

  • Municipal councilors, CAOs, clerks, treasurers, planners
  • Police leaders, police service board representatives
  • Social services and other community stakeholders and champions
