The Community Safety and Well-Being Task Force is a temporary Committee of Council in place until March 2021.

The mandate of the Community Safety and Well-Being Task Force is to initiate an inclusive relationship-based process to create actionable recommendations for Council regarding the future of community safety and well-being in the city that are anti-racist.  (Bylaw 19407)

Through an inclusive, relationship-based approach the Task Force will explore how services users and service providers can work together to create actionable funding suggestions and policy changes to achieve better outcomes.

The Task Force will be comprised of:

  • An independent Chair
  • 10 community Members
  • 2 City Administration Staff
  • 2 Edmonton Police Services Staff
  • 1 Member of the Edmonton Police Commission

The Task Force will work independently to develop recommendations to address racism, discrimination, excessive use of force, poverty and homelessness based on trends, best practices, and change models from across Canada.  Recommendations could also include options to integrate social services to enhance community safety and well-being in the city.

Under the leadership of the Chair, members will work under tight timelines to provide anti-racist recommendations in a written report to City Council by March 31, 2021.  This work will include identifying, engaging, and seeking input from stakeholder groups, relevant City Council committees, and subject matter experts.
