Halton Region launches online public engagement survey

Halton Region launches online public engagement survey

Release Date: Jul 21, 2017

From July 21 to August 31, Halton Region is inviting residents, businesses and community organizations to complete a brief online survey at halton.ca to share feedback about how they want to be engaged by the Region. As public engagement is an important step to help inform the development of high-quality regional programs and services, feedback from the survey will help to inform how the Region delivers public engagement to the community.

“Regional Council is committed to providing members of the public with an opportunity to provide meaningful input,” said Regional Chair, Gary Carr. “We have had great success with many engagement initiatives such as the Citizen Reference Panel where Halton residents worked closely with Council and Regional staff to help identify priorities for the Region’s Strategic Action Plan. I look forward to building upon our public engagement practices in order to offer engagement opportunities that are convenient and accessible to our residents.”

The survey is part of a review Halton is conducting on the Region’s current public engagement framework, which is identified as a priority action in the Region’s 2015-2018 Strategic Action Plan. Key components of the project include reviewing current public engagement trends and best practices, developing community consultation guidelines and reviewing public engagement tools.
