City Launches New Data Dashboard to Drive Shared Safety and Well-being 
The City of Timmins has published a new open data dashboard to track progress of four safety and well-being priorities identified in the municipal Community Safety and Well-being Plan (the Plan)

The City’s Plan outlines a framework to provide a strategic end to homelessness, improve outcomes of mental health and addiction, increase youth engagement and belongingness, and encourage a shared effort to improve the health and welfare of all residents.

The data dashboard provides annual and quarterly updates for key indicators that measure the City’s progress towards each goal, including the number of people actively experiencing homelessness in Cochrane District, and annual paramedic calls and Emergency Dept. visits attributed to mental health and addictions.

“The City is actively working with over 40 service agencies and health care providers to improve community safety and well-being,” says Mayor Michelle Boileau. “There are measurable results from the actions and initiatives already underway. The dashboard provides the community with a snapshot of how we’re doing today and where we’re heading tomorrow.”

The data dashboard is the latest way that the City of Timmins is delivering results-based information to build transparency and accountability.

“It will take a collective effort to successfully deliver this plan, and that includes commitment from all levels of government, social services, business, industry, and individual community members,” adds Boileau. “We need everyone to see themselves as part of the strategy and the solution.
