What's "Community Engagement?"



Community engagement is a process of ensuring the people who live, work, and play in a community have the chance to provide input about decisions that affect the future of the community. Community engagement is a major strategic priority for the City of Brampton, and the Office of Community Engagement was founded to ensure public feedback has a role in major decision-making processes at City Hall.


For residents, community engagement is a chance to:

 •Use your experience and ideas to influence City projects
 •Learn more about City initiatives and municipal services
 •Meet other people who share your passion for building a stronger city
 

For City staff and Council, community engagement is an opportunity to:

 •Better understand the needs of the community
 •Meet and talk with community members one-on-one
 •Work with community members to identify practical, realistic solutions to important City issues
