Join the Canadian Municipal Network on Crime Prevention (CMNCP) and partners for a virtual training session* on crime prevention and community safety planning in the rural context. This one-of-a-kind training is developed and led by CMNCP, the only organization in Canada focusing on rural crime prevention from a multi-sectoral perspective. To date, CMNCP has trained over 500 participants in 400 communities across Canada.

The training will provide participants with the necessary understanding, knowledge, and practice implications to prepare a rural community safety plan in collaboration with community partners that proactively addresses locally identified priority risks.

Note: This training is offered in combination with the general training on community safety and well-being planning, but will include a number of separate modules, presentations, and breakout groups that focus on the rural context. Participants will have opportunities to engage in conversations specific to community safety in the rural context, while also networking with and learning from practitioners in non-rural communities across Canada.


The 12-hour virtual training will be delivered through three 4-hour sessions:

  • Monday, March 6th, 2023
  • Monday, March 13th, 2023
  • Monday, March 20th, 2023

Supporting knowledge exchange among crime prevention, community safety, and well-being professionals, volunteers, and others working in our communities is vital to CMNCP’s commitment to equity, social justice, and evidence-informed decision-making.

We encourage the participation of diverse communities in our training and understand that funding for professional/volunteer development can be difficult to obtain. To support your participation in CMNCP’s training sessions, special registration rates have been established for delegates for whom the cost may be a barrier to attend.
