Effective Jan. 1, 2019, new legislation mandates all Ontario municipalities to prepare and adopt a community safety and well-being (CSWB) plan that proactively addresses locally identified priority risks to community safety and well-being. Additional requirements are also outlined in the legislation pertaining to conducting consultations, contents of the plan, and monitoring, evaluating, reporting and publishing the plan.

On March 11, 2019, Thunder Bay City Council appointed the Crime Prevention Council as the Advisory Committee to oversee the development of the CSWB plan for Thunder Bay.

The province has developed a Framework to guide municipalities in this work, which encourages a deeper understanding of four areas to ensure local plans are efficient and effective in making communities safer and healthier. These include Social Development, Prevention, Risk Intervention and Incident Response.

We are working closely with partners across Thunder Bay to inform the development of this plan. Public engagement/consultation, including forums, focus groups and an online survey, will take place in early 2020 to gather input from the community on its priorities for community safety and well-being. We invite you to participate and look forward to hearing from you!
