Be Heard.

Welcome to ‘Be Heard’

On this page, you’ll be able to have your voice heard by participating in a variety of GRCOA surveys and focus groups in order for us to better understand how to improve the community.


The City of Brantford, “Brantford 2050: Mapping Our Path Forward Together” initiative is an important opportunity to imagine the future of Brantford, and establish an updated mission, vision and values statement that guides City of Brantford planning and prioritizing over the next several decades.

With our city experiencing unprecedented growth, alongside challenges like housing affordability, climate issues, and social changes, now is the time for us to shape Brantford’s future hand in hand with the community.
Let’s talk about a Brantford 2050 that is inclusive and forward-thinking, laying the groundwork for the next generation. Our goal? To build a city that’s for everyone, where we care for both our community and our environment.

To ensure the community’s vital input is integrated into the eventual City of Brantford 2050 Vision document, we’re beginning an extensive community-wide conversation, and we want to hear your thoughts about these key areas of focus:
Business and industry
Climate and sustainability
Fostering a welcoming and diverse community
Transit and infrastructure
Tourism, sport and culture
Supporting our most vulnerable citizens

Be part of this exciting vision-building process by telling us what you think.

Let’s Envision 2030 at BCHS!  

The Brant Community Healthcare System (BCHS) has launched a Strategic Planning Process to develop a new five-year plan that will serve as a roadmap to the future. This plan will outline their vision, mission, values, strategic goals, and outcomes for the period from 2025 to 2030.

Incorporating the voices of our community members—patients, families, employees, professional staff, learners, volunteers, and partners—is a crucial part of this process. By doing so, they aim to ensure that the plan meets the needs of patients and the community effectively.

As we embark on BCHS’s Strategic Planning Process for 2025 to 2030, we invite everyone to complete the Vision 2030 Survey. Your input is vital in guiding the direction of BCHS’s next Strategic Plan. Please note: the survey is open from July 2 – August 12, 2024.

The survey comprises 20 questions designed to gather comprehensive input from BCHS’ diverse community. You are encouraged to share your insights and feedback on any of the 10 topics that resonate most with you. Each perspective will enrich their understanding and help inform the priorities and initiatives of BCHS’ upcoming Strategic Plan.

Your time, contribution, and thoughtful responses, are appreciated and thank you for your commitment to shaping the future of BCHS!
