Communities forums open to participants
Released by the City of Chilliwack
Community Stewardship Council
is seeking participants for a series of forums to be held in February and
The purpose of the forums is to update community stakeholders on progress in
implementing Chilliwack's 2011
Healthier Community Strategic Action
Plan and to engage community partners in identifying emerging
need, re-assessing the goals, and identifying collaborative
opportunities to address the highest priority issues related to crime and
public safety, homelessness and affordable housing, mental health and
substance use and primary health care in our community.
Community organizations, government agencies, and individuals with expertise
or an interest in any of these topics are encouraged to participate in one
or more of the following events:
• Crime and Public
Safety - Feb 5 - 8am - noon - Evergreen Hall
• Mental Health and Substance Use - Feb 12 - 8am - noon -
• Homelessness & Affordable Housing - Feb 19 - 8am - noon -
• Partners in Health Care - Feb 26 - 5pm - 9pm - Squiala
• Time for Action - March 12 - 8am - noon - Chilliwack Cultural
These half-day forums will assist the Council in revising the Plan
and to establish priorities around the Council's goals, strategies
and actions for 2014-2015.
Like before, these forums call for community-wide collaboration and
coordinated action as strategies to tackle these issues. Community
ownership and accountability for the plan will be critical to its
success, so widespread participation is needed.
