Town of Oakville invites community input on inclusion initiatives

Wednesday, March 01, 2023

Online survey to gather public input open until March 15

The Town of Oakville is planning to update the rainbow crosswalk at Kerr Street and Lakeshore Road in June and would like your feedback on the design.

Community members are invited to participate in a short online survey to provide input and also share ways the town can better show allyship and support for all members of our community. The five-minute survey, which is anonymous and confidential, is open until March 15, 2023.

Feedback will help the town better understand what it can do to support belonging in our community. Community participation is also welcomed on what more the town can do to demonstrate inclusion for the community in the coming years.

To learn more about the town’s diversity and inclusion efforts, visit the Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility Multi-year Plan page.
