There were two phases of public engagement for this review. The first phase, held in June 2019, included five public open houses and an online survey. The purpose of this phase was to collect public input regarding concerns and suggestions for the current program. These consultations inform potential amendments to address issues that were identified in the consultations.
The second phase of public engagement included four public open houses and an online survey held in November/December 2019. The purpose of this phase was to validate what was heard in the first phase of engagement and to collect feedback on proposed draft amendments. The input received during the second phase were considered as amendments were finalized.
Further detail on the public engagement process and a summary of the input received are available in the Summary of Engagement report.
