The Town’s award-winning Communications staff advise Town Council and the senior leadership team on public engagement and communications strategy and promote Town programs, services, events, opportunities and governance through the Town website, social media, advertising, publications, media relations and more.
The Town is committed to creating opportunities for meaningful dialogue and participation in decisions that impact residents; we will conduct transparent and inclusive engagement that is responsive and accountable. Town Council approved the revised Public Engagement Policy in June, 2018.
As per Town policy, every effort is made to reach a wide variety of Cochrane groups and residents and offer a variety of ways to provide feedback when there are decisions to be made. Opportunities for engagement are profiled on LetsTalkCochrane.ca

Cochrane’s brand is about motivation and aspiration, built from our western traditions and values and driven by vision. The earth tones represent respect for the earth, land, water and sky while the rolling line under the horse and rider is a tribute to the landscape.
The tagline, How the West is Now, is a timeless statement which maintains a strong link to western heritage, ideals and traditions, while speaking of the present and looking forward into the future. Cochrane Town Council approved the logo on April 11, 2011.
