The City is developing Vaccine Engagement Teams to support vaccination efforts, particularly in communities hardest hit by COVID-19.
Through the City’s Community Coordination Plan clusters, the City will invite community agencies, grassroots groups, resident-led groups and faith–based organizations to form vaccine engagement teams.
The City is providing funding to not-for-profit organizations to act as Vaccine Engagement Partner Leads from April 2021 to March 2022.
An additional dedicated funding will be provided for Indigenous leaders and communities to self-determine their approach to community engagement and vaccine mobilization in their communities.
This Expression of Interest are open and applications are due on March 29, 2021. Once agencies are selected they will work with the City to co-design their engagement plans, co-ordinate their efforts and leverage City communications.
