Community Safety and Well Being Plan
In 2018, the Province of Ontario passed Bill 175, “Safer Ontario Act”. This Act requires that every municipality in Ontario adopt a Community Safety and Well-Being Plan. The Huron County Community Safety and Well Being Plan was prepared in collaboration with all 9 lower-tier municipalities in Huron County and a multi-sectoral Advisory Committee that included representatives from social and community organizations, school boards, boards of health, the police service and other local service providers working to protect or enhance safety and well-being.
An oversight committee with multi-sectoral representation and reflective of the community has been formed in Huron County to guide initiatives, and address four identified priority areas of action as follows:
- Mental Health and Addictions,
- Housing Stability and Homelessness,
- Domestic and Family Violence,
- Community Security.
