Couchiching CSWB Plan


Community Safety and Well-Being is the ideal state of a sustainable community where everyone is safe, has a sense of belonging, opportunities to participate, and where individuals and families can meet their needs for education, health care, food, housing, income, and social and cultural expression.

CSWB Plans are Provincially mandated under Bill 175, Safer Ontario Act, 2018. Bill 175 required all municipalities to develop a Community Safety and Well-Being Plan for their local municipality.

Couchiching CSWB Local Table

The purpose of the local CSWB Table is to engage the municipalities, local stakeholders, and those with lived and living experience in a collaborative initiative to determine and design the local activities needed to successfully implement the local CSWB Plan for the Geographical Municipal Grouping (GMG). For Couchiching, the GMG is Orillia, Oro-Medonte, Ramara and Severn.

Members of the Local Table include:

  • Township of Ramara (Business and Communication Coordinator)
  • Agilec (Employment Specialist)
  • Information Orillia (Operations Manager)
  • Catholic Family Services *MHA (CEO)
  • Senior Parish Outreach (Volunteer Supports)
  • Innisfil Community Foundation (Executive Director)
  • Orillia CDC (Community Economic Development Coordinator)
  • OPP (Community Mobilization Sergeant)

Ways to Participate

It is critical to engage local community residents and supporting organizations in the implementation of these plans. We will continue to consult throughout the life of the plan, and are always looking for participation in our local tables.
