The project is administered by the City, and is partially funded by Public Safety Canada's National Crime Prevention Centre.
The purpose of this RFP is to select one (1) qualified Proponent to fully implement the services described in the RFP as a part of the YGPPP. Experienced community-based organizations and partnerships of community-based organizations are encouraged to respond.
