Attend a Public Roundtable

Participant feedback for the members of the Citizens’ Assembly from the Assembly’s three Public Roundtable meetings.



We encourage everyone in Grandview-Woodland to participate in one or more of the public roundtable meetings.

At the public roundtable meetings you will discuss important issues and ideas with Assembly members face-to-face. The public roundtables are also great way to hear first-hand about what the Assembly has been doing.

There will be one public roundtable during each of the three stages of the Assembly.

1. Wednesday, November 26, 7 pm – 9 pm, Maritime Labour Centre, 1880 Triumph St

At the first Public Roundtable, Assembly members will workshop with community members a draft set of values to guide growth and change in the neighbourhood. There will also be a discussion about how these values should manifest themselves in the Grandview-Woodland over the next 30 years.
