2022-2025 Community Safety & Well-Being Plan

The Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) process is complete and a CSWB Plan has been submitted to the Province.

2022-2025 Township of Manitouwadge CSWB Plan

Thank you to everyone who shared their insight and ideas regarding the development of the Community Safety and Well-Being Plan. As we move forward, we will continue to work closely with partners throughout Manitouwadge. Public engagement/consultation, including forums, focus groups and online surveys have been part of the information gathering from the community to identify key priorities and chart a path forward.


The Community Safety and Policing Act, 2019, S.O. 2019, c. 1, Sched. 1 Part XVI mandated every municipality across Ontario to prepare and adopt a Community Safety and Well-being Plan by July 2021. The new legislation required a CSWB plan that proactively addresses locally identified priority risks to community safety and well-being. Additional requirements are also outlined in the legislation pertaining to conducting consultations, contents of the plan, and monitoring, evaluating, reporting and publishing the plan.

The province has developed a Framework to guide municipalities in this work, which encourages a deeper understanding of four areas to ensure local plans are efficient and effective in making communities safer and healthier. These include Social Development, Prevention, Risk Intervention and Incident Response.
