The Bruce and Grey Community Safety and Well-Being Advisory Committee is moving to action to further its goal of achieving safe, sustainable communities.

This large and dedicated collaborative is comprised of Bruce and Grey Counties, 16 lower-tier municipalities, eight police services, 14 police service boards, three boards of education, and more than 30 health and social service agencies and community committees. The Advisory Committee spent 2020 analyzing local data, reviewing community assets, and understanding resident perceptions of risks to safety and well-being shared through a community engagement survey. This work culminated in a regional Community Safety and Well-Being Plan (CSWBP) that was approved by both county councils.

The Bruce and Grey CSWBP identified 5 priority areas of risk where partners will work together to make measurable improvements on both regional and local issues. These areas include: Addiction and Substance Use, Mental Health, Crime Prevention, Housing and Homelessness, and Poverty and Income. Now, in order to evaluate the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on resident perceptions of safety and well-being, the committee is once again launching the community engagement survey for a second time – the survey will run from April 1st to May 16th, 2021 and can be found on the CSWBP website at cswbp-brucegrey.ca. Hard copies of survey are also available at local Municipal offices.
