Our Future Hamilton - Communities in Conversation

Don’t miss your chance to help shape the vision

Since April, we have gathered ideas from over 31,000 residents to create a new 25 year vision for Hamilton. Make sure your thoughts and ideas are heard. Complete a survey by November 30th to help identify priorities for the new community vision. You can participate in either English (http://fluidsurveys.com/s/OurFutureHamilton/?l=eng-ca) or French (http://fluidsurveys.com/s/OurFutureHamilton/?l=fr-ca). The survey contains 20 questions and will take you approximately 20 minutes to complete.

If you would prefer to complete this survey on paper (print version), please contact:

Bobbi Jo Beitz
Phone: 905-546-2424 ext. 5913
Email: bobbijo.beitz@hamilton.ca 

Once you complete the survey, we hope you will take a few moments to share the survey with your networks by email or through social media. We want to hear from as many people as possible by November 30th.

What will happen after I complete the survey?

After many months of talking to people about their vision for the future of Hamilton, the new community vision is beginning taking shape. A draft community vision report will be released early in 2016. We will let you know once it is available. We hope you will take some time to read the draft report and provide feedback on the document.

If you have any questions, please send us an email at ourfuturehamilton@hamilton.ca or get in touch by calling 905-546-2424 ext. 6084.
