It is every person’s right to live in a community where they can participate in work, recreation and cultural activities without fear of exposure to crime, harassment or harm to themselves, their families, their neighbours or their property.
The West Broadway Community Organization (WBCO) is actively working to improve safety conditions and perceptions of safety in this community, in partnership with residents, businesses, community organizations, police and government.
West Broadway Neighbourhood Safety Plan
In 2010, WBCO released the West Broadway Neighbourhood Safety Plan. It represents the collective efforts of many concerned community members and is the physical embodiment of a year of consultation, surveying, research, writing and reflection.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Safety Planning process, your generosity, consideration and commitment to this neighbourhood are very much appreciated. In particular, WBCO would like to commend members of the Safety Plan Advisory Committee for their enthusiasm and guidance over the span of this process.
WBCO organizes and hosts workshops and presentations relating to rental safety. Such topics include; a tenant’s rights and responsibilities, bed bugs, etc. If you are interested in holding a presentation for your agency, contact WBCO’s Housing Initiatives/Tenant Outreach Coordinator.
