Stakeholder Engagement

The Safety Codes Council values the expertise and hands-on experience of our various stakeholders. The feedback we receive from our partners and clients is essential to our planning process and helps guide our strategic direction. We strive to engage stakeholders through a variety of ways, including working groups, focus groups, surveys, interviews, and more.

Stakeholder Engagement Framework

The Safety Codes Council has developed a stakeholder engagement framework to guide our organization as we continue to build strong mutually beneficial relationships with our partners and stakeholders.

Alberta’s safety codes system is complex and ever changing. This framework will ensure the perspectives of those we serve – our clients and stakeholders – are reflected in our programs and services.

Our stakeholder engagement framework was created using IAP2 (International Association of Public Participation) best practices and reviewed by internal and external partners before publication. This framework provides insight into our engagement approach and methods we undertake in support of our mission, mandate, and strategic plan. This framework will provide clear direction as we engage our partners and work together to understand shared risks and establish common goals within the safety system.

The Council is committed to working with stakeholders in Alberta’s safety codes system and we believe effective engagement is integral to building a culture of collaboration and transparency between our organization and our partners.
