About this project

The City is developing its first Corporate Strategic Plan, which will identify a vision, goals, and key actions to be achieved over this term of Council and beyond.

We are pleased to present the Draft Corporate Strategic Plan, and invite you to review and provide any further comments or feedback by November 8, 2023. Input received will help inform the final plan, which will be presented at the December 4, 2023 Executive Committee.

While this plan originated from extensive discussion and collaboration between Mayor Ashe and Members of Council, community engagement lies at the heart of it, and has helped shape the fundamental principles that underpin the strategy.

From mid-June to September 30, 2023, members of the community had an opportunity to learn more about the plan and provide their feedback.

The City hosted a community survey and various engagement opportunities. View What We Heard.
