Community Safety and Well-Being Plan

Under the Province of Ontario’s Bill 175, Safer Ontario Act (2018), the Ministry of the Solicitor General requires that the Council of every municipality shall prepare and, by resolution, adopt a Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) Plan on or before July 1, 2021.

Municipalities have the flexibility to complete this task individually or in partnership with neighbouring municipalities to develop a joint plan. Tay Township has partnered with the Town of Midland, Town of Penetanguishene and the Township of Tiny to develop a joint North Simcoe Community Safety and Well-being Plan.

The Plan will focus on the following three (3) areas of risk:

1. Mental Health and Addictions
2. Attainable Housing
3. Education (with a focus on skilled trade)

CSWB planning involves a collaborative approach including consultations with various sectors, agencies and organizations, including but not limited to, police services, health/mental health services, educational services, community/social services and community services to children/youth and custodial services to children/youth. 

The goal of the CSWB Plan is to outline strategies and actions to improve safety and well-being for the community.
