The South Simcoe Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) Plan lays the foundation for the towns of Innisfil and Bradford West Gwillimbury and South Simcoe Police Service to tackle tough social issues at the individual and community level over four years (2021-2025). Focusing our efforts on addressing the root causes and concentrating our efforts and investments in social development priorities is critical.

Areas of focus

Our CSWB Plan has prioritized four areas of focus:

  1. Mental health and addictions
  2. Housing
  3. Education
  4. Income


Our municipalities are two of the fastest-growing municipalities in Canada. The solutions to social problems are complex and require us to think, plan and partner in non-traditional ways. The CSWB plan recognizes work already underway in our community to support safety and well-being, and we will align our work to build on and strengthen these efforts.

Just as the areas of risk identified in the South Simcoe CSWB Plan are intricately connected, the plan is also connected to other CSWB planning taking shape across Simcoe County. The South Simcoe CSWB Plan is a shared commitment from local government, police, and community partners in the health, community and social service sectors to work together to address the risks and needs in our community.
