The Social Research and Planning Council is comprised of community representatives who are dedicated to the collection, analysis and distribution of information relating to social trends and issues in Perth and Huron County. It is our hope that with this information, social and human service agencies and funders can make informed decisions regarding courses of action and implementation resources.

Social Planning Councils exist in a variety of forms throughout Canada and the world. In general, they share the role of tracking the community pulse, providing a public forum for social issues dialogue, identifying and prioritizing unmet needs and building community commitment and capacity to address these needs.
