Hamilton Public Engagement

We're Making Changes

Have Your Say in How You Shape City Decisions.
Take our short survey and help us shape the way we do public engagement at the City of Hamilton. Survey closes April 3, 2022. Print copies of the survey are also available at local Municipal Service Centres, City Recreation Centres and Hamilton Public Library locations.

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.
