Why update Delta’s Social Action Plan

An updated Social Action Plan for Delta will provide the City with a better understanding of community needs, pressures and gaps in service provision. It is also an opportunity to recognize community assets and identify key social planning priorities and actions to make Delta a more inclusive and healthy community. Additionally, an updated social action plan will assist in understanding the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our community and systemic and emerging challenges faced by the City.
