Public Engagement Roadmap

How and when to share your ideas!

2017 – 2018 Public Engagement Road Map

From bike lanes to park improvements to changing the look and feel of downtown, the City is up to a lot these days. To inform the decisions being made, we want to hear from you. 

A workshop and open house was held on Saturday, February 18 at the Royal BC Museum. There was great discussion on projects planned for 2017/2018, the roles of citizens and businesses in decision-making and the best ways to include the community in what's coming up. The documents below summarize some of this information:

City of Victoria Public Engagement Roadmap Engagement Summary

Based on feedback from the workshop, a draft 2017 - 2018 Public Engagement Road Map and Engagement Framework has been developed. The road map outlines when the community can anticipate to provide feedback on important issues. It is intended to help make engagement more predictable and to let people know what they can expect and when; this will help to prevent “engagement fatigue”. 

2017 2018 Road Map

Stay up to date by viewing the current Public Engagement Road Map calendar. We will update the calendar frequently to ensure the community knows when and where we will be seeking input and sharing ideas on current projects.

The engagement framework provides further detail on why, how and when we engage. It also shares some tools that are used during the engagement process.

 Engagement Framework

The roadmap is guided by the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2) principles. The City of Victoria adopted IAP2 core values in 2011 and has been continually refining its engagement approach since, a commitment honoured in 2015 when it was awarded Canadian Organization of the Year.
