Applications are now being accepted to join Hamilton’s Engagement Committee and help create a better engagement process for our City. 

It has become very obvious that more and more Hamiltonians want a clearer and stronger voice in how their local government operates.

And we’re sure of two things:

  1. Citizen Engagement is not just a “feel good” exercise. It’s a two-way process that allows local governments and citizens to interact, listen and learn from each other. It is the act of involving the community in the decision making process.
  2. We need to improve the way we engage the residents of this City. Because when it’s done well, it increases the level of trust and confidence you have in us.

It’s time to start recruiting passionate and talented residents like YOU with great ideas about how to engage the people of this City.

Together we can create a ‘made-in-Hamilton’ engagement process that involves everyone in Hamilton on issues that affect us all.
