Current members of the CMNCP encourage all Canadian municipalities to join us to strengthen our voice of municipally-led approaches to crime prevention through social development.
This is a particularly critical time for municipalities, as Canadians have voted decisively for new leadership and for new policy priorities in community safety and justice as outlined in Prime Minister Trudeau’s mandate letters to his Ministers Ralph Goodale and Jody Wilson-Raybould.
Help us help your community and all communities across Canada to build a safer, healthier, more inclusive and more prosperous Canada through crime prevention.
By becoming CMNCP member, your municipality will have ready access to international and national evidence-based crime prevention programs and practices, mentorship, and support from community safety specialists and peer practitioners, as well as workshops and training. Your municipality will also become part of a national voice for municipally based crime prevention through social development.
Members of CNMCP commit to adhering to a shared commitment to promote community safety and crime prevention through social development, including:
- The recognition of the importance of community safety and crime prevention for the development of the municipality.
- A willingness to develop a collaborative and community-based approach for municipal safety and crime prevention.
- The capacity to effectively provide direction and coordinate municipal action through an existing or future responsibility centre or similar mechanism.
- The designation of a representative to be part of CMNCP and to act as an anchor and key resource person in the municipality.
- A commitment to take an active part in CMNCP, including sharing information, taking part in conference calls, attending national and regional meetings, and making key municipal resources available for mentoring, mobilization and/or training activities.
- Approval by the CMNCP Coordination Committee.
