Residents Invited to Get Involved in City of Victoria's Governance Review
May 2, 2022
MNP LLP, the consulting firm engaged to conduct the governance review for the City of Victoria, is looking for public input to help shape the City’s governance structures and processes. The review will consider ways the City's current governance model is effective and how it can be improved.
Governance involves the structures and processes for decision making, focusing on openness and accountability. It's about the City’s leadership and responsibility to residents. It includes understanding residents' needs and making decisions in the best interests of the city.
The goal of the review is to provide Council with recommendations for changes to any key bylaws, policies and guidelines and to support best practices for efficient, effective and inclusive governance.
The public is invited to get involved by completing a 10-minute online survey or attending a public event.
MNP will also be meeting with representatives of groups with an interest in business, planning and development and community well-being. Written submissions on behalf of organizations can be submitted to email@example.com.
For those who wish to participate in a group setting, in-person and virtual public events will be offered where people can learn more about the City’s governance and share their experiences and ideas for improvements. Each session will include a brief presentation and facilitated, small break-out discussions.
Feedback is being accepted until Friday, May 13, 2022. Take the survey, register for the online event and learn how the City’s current governance model compares to other Canadian cities at www.engage.victoria.ca
