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.

If you are interested in accessing this rate, please contact


Please register by May 5th, 2023.


All training participants will receive a certificate upon completion of the training.


  • Representatives from communities interested in developing and implementing a community safety and well-being plan; municipal employees who may be tasked to create, guide, and/or implement a community safety and well-being plan
  • First Nation communities, elected officials, as well as local agencies, organizations, and service providers from different sectors participating on multi-sectoral advisory committees or who may be involved in the planning process
  • Students interested in working with communities on violence prevention, community safety, municipal governance, social development, and community safety and well-being planning.


Ideally, interested participants have taken Building Safer Communities PART I or have a working knowledge of crime prevention and community safety at the local level. If you have not completed PART I, it is still possible to register for Part II and take Part I at a later date. CMNCP will provide a preparation document in advance of the training for attendees who have not yet taken the introduction training.
