Community Safety and Wellbeing Plan

WellbeingWR along with many other community partners and agencies have participated in the advisory of the Community Safety and Wellbeing Framework that is being led by the Region of Waterloo. The Framework identifies conditions for wellbeing and safety such as committing to anti-hate and anti-racism, truth and reconciliation, and addressing systems that limit safety and wellbeing. It also provides foundational actions to achieve these conditions. Stay tuned to the Region of Waterloo’s webpage for updates, opportunities and actions on this plan.
