Engage WR-Community Meetings

We wanted to share this important information from the City of Kitchener. We encourage you to participate, so you can make your voice heard and continue to make Kitchener a place where you and others can participate and belong as full citizens.


The City of Kitchener wants feedback from residents about its 2023-2026 strategic plan as well as creating a vision for the next 20 years!

Kitchener residents, they want to hear from YOU about your priorities!

There are many ways for residents to contribute their thoughts. These include: 
Engage Kitchener gives residents the opportunity to submit their thoughts, participate in an online poll, sharing everything from writing to drawing to videos to express their vision for the future.
Street teams will be out this summer and fall asking for in-person feedback.

The City will also host a number of conversations at local community centres. They are as follows:

September 7, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Williamsburg Community Centre
September 8, 6:30-8:30 p. m. at Victoria Hills Community Centre
September 12, 6:30-8:30 p. m. Centreville Chicopee Community Centre
September 13, 6:30-8:30 p. m. Bridgeport Community Centre

There will be a panel of residents put together to help the City develop strategic goals and actions for inclusion within the plan. Recruitment will begin later this year.
