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
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.
