Welcome! Thank you for your interest in completing this survey. 
The City of Wetaskiwin, with support from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), is partnering with the Canadian Municipal Network on Crime Prevention to develop a Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) strategy. A CSWB strategy aims to bring key community stakeholders and agencies together to identify concerns and challenges related to safety and well-being, and to implement proactive approaches to address them.

Increasing community safety and well-being for people living in the city of Wetaskiwin requires a community-based approach to issues such as poverty and inequality as well as services for those struggling with mental illness, substance use, and other social challenges. While this will go a long way to help address community safety and well-being in the long run, these efforts should be balanced with more immediate interventions to prevent and reduce crimes.

To create a useful Community Safety and Well-Being strategy, we want to understand how you currently perceive community safety and well-being in the city of Wetaskiwin and learn from your experiences. We are looking at what is working well, as well as identifying challenges and community needs to be met.

The project will include several opportunities for community members to provide input, including this Community Safety & Well-Being Survey, focus groups, and other engagements.
