What is a Strategic Plan?

The Strategic Plan for the Town of East Gwillimbury is Council’s vision for the future direction of the Corporation. As with the initial versions of the Town Strategic Plan, the new pillars outlined in the Strategic Plan will provide guidance to Town programs and services. Senior staff have been extensively involved in development of the Strategic Plan and will assume ownership for implementing the strategic directions and actions contained in the document.

Successful implementation of the Strategic Plan will require the CAO and Senior Management to meet annually to discuss and review their progress against the Strategic Plan pillars and actions. A Community Report will be completed to provide a progress update and outline the strategic initiatives underway or accomplished. See above for the Community Report from the 2015 to 2018 Strategic Plan.

Objectives will be established for the following year as part of the development of business plans and budgets.
Management will engage all staff to evaluate progress and accomplishments on strategic goals. This will allow staff to thoroughly understand and use the Strategic Plan to help set goals and performance objectives for themselves.
