North Bay’s Community Safety and Well-Being (CSWB) Plan is a coordinated effort to foster a safe, healthy and inclusive community by responding to identified priority risks. The Plan builds upon the community’s strengths while also addressing gaps in the community’s safety and wellbeing landscape. Ultimately, the Plan sets out to meet locally identified goals, outcomes, and objectives through evidence-based outputs and actions. 

Four priorities have been identified for North Bay’s CSWB Plan. Three priorities are specifically associated with the top community safety and well-being risks while the final priority pertains to North Bay’s service network. These priorities are intended to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the service network and ultimately are aimed to mitigate and reduce community risks overall.

Service Coordination 

A successful CSWB Plan requires keen interest and collaboration from a number of community organizations and government services, planning tables and committees.

Mental Health 

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. 

Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.


Housing is a human right and we all deserve a safe place to call home.

Fostering a compassionate community is part of understanding and, ultimately, ending homelessness.


Addiction is a state of psychological or physical dependence (or both) on the use of alcohol or other drugs.

The term is often used as an equivalent term for substance dependence and sometimes applied to behavioral disorders, such as sexual, internet, and gambling addictions..
