Dufferin’s Community Safety & Well-Being Plan

Nov 9th, 2020
By rwhelan

The Comprehensive Police Services Act (2019) requires municipal governments to adopt Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) plans. The legislation states every municipal council is required to develop and adopt these plans by working in partnership with a multi-sectoral advisory committee, effective January 1, 2019 and to be completed originally by January 1, 2021. However, in light of the current pandemic the Province signaled that an extension would be granted.

The Community Safety and Well-Being Planning Framework will help to guide our municipality and local partners as we develop a local plan. Four priority areas have been developed to assist this framework:

  1. Social development
  2. Prevention
  3. Risk intervention, and
  4. Incident response
