Our Future Hamilton is the city's new 25-year community vision

Conversations with nearly 55,000 residents helped to create it. The Our Future Hamilton Community Vision features six community priorities in the areas of community engagement, economic prosperity, public health and safety, environmental responsibility, built infrastructure, and culture and social diversity.

Together with government, community partners and residents - we all have an important role to play in making Hamilton's community vision a reality.

We want to identify community partners and organizations who are working in areas that help make Hamilton’s new community vision a reality over the next 25 years.
