At our Annual General Meeting — hosted via Zoom on June 28, 2021 — we launched an updated strategic plan that will guide us to the end of our current contribution agreement with FedDev Ontario. Prepared by 31st Line Strategic Communications, in consultation with our staff and board members, we are thrilled to share the final product with our partners, clients and other community-based organizations.

An online survey we conducted in the summer of 2020 served as the foundation of our strategic planning sessions. We have also involved ourselves in numerous strategic planning and community economic development initiatives undertaken by others, aligning our priorities and goals with municipal, regional, provincial and federal partners.

The updated strategic plan includes a new mission, vision and key priorities to achieve our goals over the next three years. During our strategic planning sessions, it became clear that our primary role is strengthening the community in many different ways.

However, we will never meet our goals and objectives without the support of our clients and partners. Entrepreneurs and business owners are our champions as much as we are theirs, not to mention we will continue supporting the projects of our municipal and regional partners. Our organization is also committed to building upon mutually beneficial relationships with banks and other professional service providers.

In partnership with 31st Line Strategic Communications, we developed a video to showcase the key elements of our strategic plan. Watch the video above to see the highlights of our plan.
