Hamilton Public Engagement

Opportunities to get involved

Civic engagement is fundamental to a healthy democracy. As community partners, residents and stakeholders have a key role to play in realizing the City’s Vision to be the “best place to raise a child and age successfully”. Engagement opportunities with the City range from formal, informal to even creative. Consistent engagement and feedback from the public helps the City to shape its key policies, programs and processes that are integral to the City’s vision, strategic plan and other business operations.
