A safe city in which residents feel secure.
- Increase residents’ sense of belonging and safety by 10%
- Make Vancouver the safest major city in Canada
Feeling safe and a sense of inclusion in our communities is essential to our well-being.
A strong sense of belonging is associated with better self-reported physical and mental health, while social exclusion denies us the opportunity for full economic and social participation in society.
