New Westminster’s Public Engagement Strategy

December 06, 2016

On December 6, 2016, the City of New Westminster adopted its new Public Engagement Strategy, developed in collaboration with the SFU Centre for Dialogue.

The Civic Engage program team worked with the Mayor’s Task Force on Public Engagement, which consisted of elected officials, community members and City staff, to develop a made-in New West strategy that builds on the City’s existing work, best practices from other municipalities and leading industry standards such as the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) and the National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation.
