Recent news and events

PROPOSED TRANSITION TO A CANADIAN CPTED ORGANIZATION

“On February 11, 2021, CPTED Ontario passed a motion to “transition into a national CPTED organization by January 30, 2022.”

 

In 2020, CPTED Ontario engaged with CPTED practitioners from Western Canada and discussed a possibility of creating national CPTED organization for Canada.

 

CPTED Ontario was formed in 2001, with its mission to reduce crime thereby working towards an improvement of the quality of life by promoting Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design in Ontario. CPTED Ontario’s vision is to promote safe community design through advocacy, education and networking.

 

Over the years, CPTED Ontario flourished with a strong base of local individual and corporate members. In the absence of any other provincial organizations, CPTED Ontario also attracted other members from across Canada, which led to our current discussion of a national CPTED organization.

 

Our membership would benefit from the formation of a larger organization, as it will bring more memberships, resources and revenue, which will lead to more educational and advocacy opportunities. More importantly, we will have a boarder impact on quality of life in Canada and create a unified voice in Canada and on the international stage.

 

I am pleased to announce that a transition team has been formed for the purpose of laying down the groundwork to make a national CPTED organization into reality. To date the transition team has been responsible for the name selection process which resulted in "CPTED Canada" being chosen as the new name of the organization. During the remainder of the year, we will undertake to keep you informed of our progress of the transition and give you opportunities for input into this initiative.

 

If you would like further information or are currently not a member of CPTED Ontario and are interested in potentially becoming a member of this exciting, new organization or, I encourage you to contact us at cptedontario@gmail.com. Thank you.
