Community Survey - 5 Year Review - Housing And Homelessness Plan
 
Renfrew, ON:  Renfrew County is undertaking a review of the original 10 year plan at its halfway point to determine how effectively the plan is responding to the housing and homelessness needs of the community. As part of this review process, the County is seeking feedback from housing stakeholders and the broader community.
 
The purpose of this survey is to gather information that will help evaluate the direction of the plan and improve outcomes for people experiencing challenges related to homelessness and affordable housing.  All information gathered will be considered confidential, will only be used to form the plan review process and will not be shared with any other person, group or organization.  The information collected will help ensure the plan is meeting its objectives.
 
The survey can be found at this link https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VKKNN7Z , or on the County of Renfrew’s website at www.countyofrenfrew.on.ca
Surveys can also be emailed to hhp@countyofrenfrew.on.ca

In 2013 the County of Renfrew created a 10-year plan to address issues of housing and homelessness. The 10-year plan documented who lives in the service area as well as the housing and homelessness challenges they face. It also looked at solutions to address these challenges, identifying what actions made the most sense given the priority needs, and set out 4 goals, 12 key objectives and 33 tasks to tackle housing and homelessness issues. Each year the County provides a formal status update on actions undertaken in support of the plan. The 10-year plan can be viewed at
