This guide is for local governments looking to incorporate equity-focused community engagement strategies in their public consultation processes.

Featuring community examples, resources, strategies and other useful information, this guide helps local governments plan their community input process to ensure the feedback they receive is meaningful and authentic. Equity-centred, inclusive community engagement can help shape government policies and projects to create healthier, more accessible communities. Look to the Community Engagement Continuum on page two, adapted from the International Association for Public Participation, for a helpful and straightforward reference when evaluating the benefits of different methods of public engagement.
