Stratford, St. Marys, North Perth, West Perth, Perth East and Perth South are looking to their residents for input as they collaboratively develop a Community Safety and Wellbeing (CSWB) Plan. All municipalities in Ontario are required, under the Province's Safer Ontario Act, 2018, to develop a CSWB Plan by 2021.

The goal of the CSWB Plan is to achieve a sustainable community where everyone is safe, has a sense of belonging, access to services and where individuals and families are able to meet their needs for education, health care, food, housing, income, and social and cultural expression. The six partnered municipalities hope to engage residents during this stage of the development process.

Informed through consultation, the Plan will focus on ways community members, government, local agencies and stakeholders can work together to sustain and improve the overall quality of life for residents in the City of Stratford, St. Marys, North Perth, West Perth, Perth East and Perth South.

Citizens are being asked to participate by sharing their perspectives and experiences regarding community safety and wellbeing through an online survey which can be found at: www.surveymonkey.com/r/CSWBPsurvey.

To participate in the survey by telephone or to receive a hard copy of the survey, call 519-271-3773 ext. 231 or email jfast@stratford.ca.

The CSWB Plan survey is being launched today (July 30th, 2020) and will remain open until September 11th, 2020.
If you have questions about this initiative or would like more information, please reach out to City of Stratford Social Services Director, Kim McElroy at kmcelroy@stratford.ca or by phone at (519) 271-3773 ext. 6252.
