Citizens are involved in decisions that affect them; act as stewards of the environment; and are connected and responsible to each other, the environment, and their government.
We are working towards
- More active and engaged community associations
- Increasing City partnerships
- Increasing volunteerism
- More opportunities for public participation
- Greater engagement with hard-to-reach audiences
Engaging the community is part of the City’s democratic responsibility; fosters a greater sense of community and pride; and leads to better and more strongly supported civic decisions. A connected, active community strengthens the social safety net and makes people happier.
The City collaborated with Government to examine how it engages with the public in decision-making. The City will use feedback obtained in this process to make changes to how it communicates and interacts with the public. Read the Yukon government report for more information.
