As elected officials of the Town of East Gwillimbury, our role is to ensure that the needs of residents and businesses are met in an effective and efficient manner. One of the first major tasks we undertook as a Council this term was to develop the Strategic Plan, to guide our decisions and actions over the term.

The priorities and actions laid out in the Strategic Plan are based on many discussions and interactions with residents as well as a formal consultation process. The four priorities identified evolved naturally out of the themes that we continuously heard as residents’ wishes for the future. Each of these priorities becomes an important puzzle piece and complements one another to guide us along the path of creating a strong, vibrant community.

This plan is our commitment to each resident, to remind you that we have listened to your feedback and are focused on moving forward projects and initiatives that support your values.

As we move through this term, we will conduct annual Community Reports to ensure we are on track and share with you the progress we are making. We welcome feedback, and look forward to a healthy and productive four years for the Town of East Gwillimbury.
