The Well-being Partnership was the driving force behind the development of the Meaford Well-being Plan (2021-2025). Made up of local leaders, agencies and organizations, the Partnership listened to community feedback, in support of meaningful changes that will make Meaford a stronger, safer, and happier community.

The provincial government directed municipalities to develop a “Community Safety and Well-Being Plan” by late 2021. Meaford Council decided that the best way to do this is to bring together the local experts who provide support and services in Meaford, and to hear from our community. Our Plan was built around our community's needs, and has representation from multiple local perspectives on safety and well-being. 

The Partnership was made up of members from many different sectors who provide support or services to the Meaford community. Members are local leaders from healthcare, education, policing, community services, child/youth services, and social services. They each bring a unique perspective and set of resources to the table, and are committed to making Meaford a safer and stronger community. The Well-being Partnership looked at the risks that impact our community’s health, safety, and well-being. The Partnership then looked at what can be done to improve our safety and well-being for the better.

The Well-being Advisory Committee

The Well-being Advisory Committee operates under its Terms of Reference to provide advice to Council. Meetings of the Well-being Advisory Committee are public, and anyone is welcome to observe. Agendas and minutes from past meeting are available here.

Throughout Plan development in 2020 and 2021, we heard from residents about their unique experiences and needs. Surveys and public consultations allowed us to understand the issues affecting safety, health, and well-being in our area, and get your ideas to improve your quality of life. We remain committed to hearing from residents as the plan is put into action.

Members of the public are encouraged to provide the Committee with their comments and questions. Presentations must be pre-arranged with Legislative Services before the agenda is released. Members of the public who wish to make a deputation about a specific agenda item at the meeting must register in advance with Legislative Services by 4:00 p.m. on the day before the meeting by contacting or 519-538-1060 ext. 1100.
