Community Engagement Review

Under the guidance of the Governance and Ethics Committee of Council, a Community Engagement Review was conducted from late 2019 through 2020, and in October 2020 the Community Engagement Review Findings and Recommendations Report and a new Community Engagement Policy were endorsed by Council.

The Report presented 30 recommendations while the policy identified key guiding principles for engagement:

  • Resourced – financial and human resources, including knowledge
  • Inclusive – diverse and adequate participation
  • Respectful – treatment, time, privacy
  • Informed – quality, consistency, timeliness
  • Meaningful – appropriate level, worthwhile for participants
  • Transparent – clear promise, open process, report back
  • Monitored – process evaluation, performance measurement

The review provided the launching off point for the organization to implement recommendations over the coming months and years toward an expanded, more defined and easier to use community engagement program across the organization. View the Council presentation.
