PlaceSpeak - Breaking down regional and municipal silos in citizen engagement

By Cowichan Valley Regional District, BC, for the TLG 2018 Case Study program

Dec 5, 2017

In 2016, the CVRD and its four member municipalities approved the use of PlaceSpeak, a locationbased citizen engagement platform, for consulting with residents and key stakeholders. PlaceSpeak’s unique geo-verification technology ensures that decision-makers are hearing from residents within the specific boundaries of their jurisdictions. Its citizen-centered model breaks down the silos between different levels of government, providing a single stop for residents to engage with decision-makers. Once a resident has signed up, they will automatically be notified of new public consultations from both the CVRD and their local government.
