On January 1, 2019, a new legislative amendment to the Police Services Act, 1990 came into force which mandated that every municipality prepare and adopt a community safety and well-being plan (CSWBP) by January 1, 2021. 

On July 3, 2019 Council agreed to participate in a joint community safety & well-being plan lead by Grey County and Bruce County. This involved cross-sector collaboration with 70 community partners in Bruce and Grey from municipalities, police services, police services boards, education, health, community and social services.


On December 14, 2020 Council passed By-law No. 2020 – 169 to adopt the Community Safety and Well-Being Planning: The Municipalities of Bruce and Grey Plan.


The goal of this plan is to “achieve sustainable communities where everyone is safe, has a sense of belonging and opportunities to participate and where individuals and families can meet their needs for education, health care, food, housing, income and social and cultural expression which will ultimately lead to a reduction in crime across the region”
