What was this engagement about?
We are inviting you to help shape how both the City of Whitehorse and the Government of Yukon talk with Yukoners to get their feedback and input on important issues. We know we don’t always get public engagement right – but we want to take steps to improve. This initiative is about you telling us what a meaningful conversation looks like to you.
We know we ask for your input a lot. This time we’re asking you to help us improve the ways we ask for your input, so that when you give your ideas, time and effort you know it will be valued.
What is public engagement?
It’s a process that links public input – like yours – into a decision using problem-solving or discussion between governments and the general public. It’s not a single event, but rather a journey that we hope will build trust and a stronger relationship between you and government.
How will my input make a difference?
Sharing your input will support the Government of Yukon and the City of Whitehorse as we improve the way we engage with the public and use your input to shape the best possible decisions.
We will use your input to create:
1. A public engagement scorecard that the Government of Yukon and the City of Whitehorse will use every time we engage with the public to measure and evaluate the success of our processes.
2. A Citizen’s Toolkit that supports you, an active and interested Yukoner, to be able to contribute to any engagement process.
