CONDUCTING COMMUNITY CONSULTATIONS

The Canadian Municipal Network on Crime Prevention is pleased to announce the official launch of CMNCP’s Practitioner Guide on Conducting Community Consultations. The event is part of CMNCP’s Future of Safe Communities Speaker Series.

Community engagement is imperative for effective approaches to enhance community safety and well-being (CSWB). Input from individuals with local, lived experience is key to ensuring any community strategy can effectively address local challenges and enhance the lives of residents. At the same time, the process through which community members are consulted can (and should) vary, depending on multiple factors. CMNCP’s Practitioner Guide on Community Consultations is intended as a resource for communities seeking to collect local feedback to inform CSWB plans, or other efforts requiring resident input. Along with an overview of the document, webinar participants will hear about the experience and learnings of several practitioners who have previously conducted community consultations as part of their CSWB plan development process.
