Survey: Community Safety and Well Being Plan
The Province has mandated municipalities to prepare and adopt a Community Safety and Well-Being plan, working with police services, health/mental health, education, community/social services and children/youth services. This Working Group, made up of municipalities in Huron County, in partnership with the Canadian Municipal Network on Crime Prevention, is inviting residents to participate in the Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) Survey. This survey will help us understand the current well-being and feelings of safety of residents in the lower-tier municipalities of Huron County so we can work together to focus on local actions that will improve quality of life for everyone.
This survey is being administered by the Canadian Municipal Network on Crime Prevention (CMNCP) on behalf of the Huron County Community Safety and Well-Being Working Group as part of the development of our Community Safety and Well-Being Plan. The plan will provide a model for collaboration, planning, and action to shape how current and emerging issues are responded to through ongoing engagement with community stakeholders.
The survey includes questions about your day-to-day life, health, education, employment, safety, leisure, and recreation experiences, as well as what you think about living, working, and playing in your community. By sharing your experiences and what matters to you, you help to shape life in your community, determine key priorities, and indicate where you think change is needed the most.
Completion of this Survey
This survey should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. The survey responses are being confidentially collected and analyzed by researchers from CMNCP. All responses will be kept confidential, and only overall results, without individual identifying information, will be shared. The survey will be available for comments until April 3, 2020.
If you have any questions about this survey or if you would like to request a paper copy, please contact Dr. Felix Munger or Audrey Monette (firstname.lastname@example.org). To learn more about the Community Safety and Well-Being Plan, please contact Carson Lamb, Clerk of the Township of North Huron (email@example.com).
