Community Safety & Well-being Plan

The City is partnering with the Canadian Municipal Network on Crime Prevention to develop a Community Safety & Well-being Plan.

Increasing community safety and well-being for people living in Regina requires a collective approach to issues such as poverty and inequality as well as services for those struggling with mental illness, substance use challenges, and homelessness. While this will go a long way to help addressing community safety in the long run, these efforts should be balanced with more immediate interventions to prevent and reduce crimes.

We want to understand how you currently perceive community safety and well-being in Regina as well as to learn from your lived experience. We’re looking at what currently exists and is working well, as well as identifying challenges and community needs to be met.

The project will include several public consultation activities, beginning with the Community Survey below and followed by focus groups and other engagements. The City will be engaging with a broad range of stakeholder groups, including but not limited to youth, seniors, women, newcomers, Indigenous residents, community service providers and others.

  • Community Survey Update

    Regina’s Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) survey was developed by the Canadian Municipal Network on Crime Prevention (CMNCP) and the City of Regina. It was administered to all residents of Regina through the Be Heard Regina website between February and April of 2021. Approximately 1,700 responses were collected and analyzed. Questions were designed to understand the perceptions and experiences related to community safety and well-being among people living in Regina. Topics covered several domains including happiness, life satisfaction, spiritual well-being, living standards, perceptions of crime, substance use, democratic engagement, and accessibility of services.

    Because of the absence of a random sample, the survey results are not generalizable to the overall population of Regina. However, they provide a comprehensive snapshot of current perceptions and issues pertaining to community safety and well-being identified by community members, which can be analyzed in addition to data, statistics, and community consultations.

  • CSWB Plan May Update

    Thanks to the more than 1,750 residents who responded to the recent Community Safety & Well-being Survey! The finds from the survey will be shared on Be Heard Regina by the end of May 2021.

    Over the past two months, the City of Regina, with partners at the Canadian Municipal Network on Crime Prevention (CMNCP), has conducted virtual consultation sessions to get a better understanding of the perspectives and experiences of various groups living in Regina. These consultations were held with a broad range of stakeholder groups, including people with disabilities, newcomers, people with lived or living experience related to substance use and/or mental health, early childhood and families, Indigenous Peoples, older adults, families and loved ones of people with lived experience, and members of the 2SLGBTQ+ community. Additional engagement sessions with Regina’s Black community and youth will also be held in the upcoming weeks.
