REACH does its work everyday on traditional lands of First Nations and Metis people, referred to as Treaty 6 Territory. REACH, along with the City of Edmonton and all the people here, are beneficiaries of this peace and friendship treaty. We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous people whose ancestors' footsteps have marked this territory for centuries. Together we call upon our collective honoured traditions and sprits to work in building a great city for both present and future generations.


Edmonton has always been a place where community matters. It is a place where neighbour is more than a word. Improving the culture and practice of community safety affects us all. Because you live in Edmonton, and care about the principles of community safety, REACH is both about you and for you. You are an integral part of this strategy. Each Edmontonian deserves to be safe and feel safe. We also share accountability to one another, to our community, and to future generations.


The REACH Edmonton Council for Safe Communities was established in 2010. Its ambition is to, in one generation (25 years), significantly increase community safety in our region; increase Edmontonians’ perception of safety and inclusion; and engage the people of Edmonton and the region in developing a culture of safety and crime prevention.


A city we are proud of, in a region which is harmonious, where all people, including the first peoples on whose lands we reside, are included, feel safe and are safe.


To strengthen community safety in our city and region through innovative ideas, building relationships and inspiring action.
