The City of Hamilton's New Transgender Protocol


On Wednesday March 8, Hamilton City Council unanimously ratified a decision made at City Council's Audit, Finance and Administration Committee to approve Aidan's Motion titled 'Protocol for Gender Identity and Gender Expression; Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming Persons.'   

Aidan was instrumental in the creation of the protocol and coordinating the discussion of it at Committee.  He would like to thank members of Hamilton's community of people who identify as "transgender and non-binary, Two Spirit communities for their contribution and publically sharing their stories.  He would also like to thank the countless others who contributed or supported the work through presentations and letters to Council.

2017 Participatory Budgeting (PB) Update!


Thank you to everyone who has submitted an idea and/or attended the community workshop!

We received 320 fabulous ideas from across the Ward, including from McMaster Students.

  • 35% relate to public safety
  • 24% relate to Parks and Recreation
  • 13% relate to other projects
  • 11% relate to large capital projects

The PB Advisory Committee reviewed the 320 submissions. They identified duplicate ideas and ones that did not meet criteria, reducing the list to 215. They also grouped similar ideas by neighbourhood. At the Community Workshop, residents came together and helped combine several similar ideas into 1 stronger one.
