Welcome to the Safe City Oshawa Partnership
In a 2010 survey of Oshawa residents, people expressed that they considered their safet to be a safe one. The Safe City Oshawa Partnerhip, composed of a diverse group of community stakeholders, aims to maintain that sense of confidence in our neighbourhoods by supporting grass-roots safety strategies. Our commitee members meet on a monthly basis, with the public welcome to attend, and undertakes steps to achieve the goals set out in the Partnership's annual work plan.
Our efforts can range from attending community events with information and practical safety resources you can take away to literally cleaning up the City using our own hands and those of local volunteers. We welcome your input on subjects you feel need attention and encourge you to stay tuned to this website where we will post a wide variety of valuable safety materials and links that help families and individuals.

Over 100 volunteers turned out for this year's 5th annual downtown cleanup event With great sunny weather, this small army put a bright, clean new face on our core, while smiling, laughing and making new contacts amongst themselves too! Many thanks to all of you who came out, and to all the partners who worked together to make it all happen.
