We need your help to shape the future of social programming in our city!

Block Parties. Community Gardens. Financial Literacy Workshops. Diversity & Inclusion Programs. Seniors’ Lunch and Learns.

These are just some of the many social programs that are offered right here in Chestermere. In the coming months, the City is doing a review to make sure they are meeting the needs of our community.

“Information garnered from this project will help us evaluate the effectiveness of existing social programs and services offered through the City, and help inform the development of new ones,” says Danielle Fermin, Manager of Community Support Services.

“By sharing your voice on what social programs are needed in Chestermere, the City will have the information to effectively evaluate social programs being offered.”

There are three ways you can get involved and share your feedback on the City’s social programs:

1. Attend an open house at City Hall on Thursday, February 13 at 3 - 4 p.m. or 6 - 7 p.m.

2. Participate in the online survey which will be open throughout the month of March. You can find the survey at www.chestermere.ca/socialprograms.

3. Join us for an interactive design lab to really dig into the details of social programs and priorities in our community. Workshops will be held on March 18 - Stay tuned for details!  Due to the global coronavirus situation, this event has been postponed until further notice. Please watch our website for details and updates.

With your help and feedback, the City will identify the community’s priorities for social programming.

Those priorities will be used to update the City’s Social Investment Framework and guide the allocation and distribution of future social program funding in Chestermere.

“Participation is key in ensuring we are funding future social programs in the most deliberate and effective manner,” says Fermin. “This project will allow for the City to understand what underlying social issues are impacting our residents in the community and to what extent are residents being impacted. We hope you take the time to share your thoughts with us!”
