Task Force on Street Parties

Struck by Principal and Vice-Chancellor Patrick Deane, the Task Force builds on Queen’s existing partnerships with the City of Kingston and community partners and provides a forum to develop new and innovative approaches to address unsanctioned street parties.

Chaired by Principal Deane, the task force will bring together the university, the City of Kingston, community partners, student leaders, as well as local enforcement and emergency response partners, to examine the effectiveness of current approaches and to learn from the best practices used in other jurisdictions. The task force will also invite input and ideas from the community.
