The City of Ottawa wants to engage the public better

The City of Ottawa is reaching out to residents this spring in order to improve how staff consults with individuals and groups on important issues.

Guidelines to improve how City staff engages the public are being drafted and the City needs to know:

  • what you think.
  • where you want to be reached.
  • how you want to be consulted.

There will be four bilingual community consultation sessions held between March 25 and April 16. For those who cannot attend a consultation session but still want to contribute, a survey and ideas campaign will be available on between March 25 and April 19, 2013.

All community consultation sessions run from 7 to 9 p.m.
