Preparing for Budget 2018

As we prepare for the 2018 City budget, provincial and municipal elections, what matters to you?


We are asking any resident who is interested to join Megan Richards and I on Tuesday July 11, 2017 for a community conversation that will help identify the issues that matter to you from the perspective of rural Ward 5 as we prepare for the 2018 City budget and the upcoming municipal and provincial elections. Feedback will be rolled back to the Making Voices Count project of the Coalition of Community Health Centres and CAWI. This is an opportunity to highlight specifically rural issues.


A key question that will be asked of you is what city social services matter to you, and where are the gaps?


Session objectives:


1.   Reflect on how city services (or lack thereof) affect the wellbeing of your community.

2.   Recognize that residents can have an impact on the city decision making process.

3.   Prepare to have an impact on the 2018 City budget, provincial and municipal elections, and;

4.   Identify city social service gaps and possible solutions




@7 pm on July 11, 2017 in the Boardroom at the Kinburn Client Service Centre.  Please RSVP with me or Megan so that we can arrange for refreshments in sufficient numbers.
