2022 to 2026 Strategic Plan Cover Get involved with EG’s 2022 to 2026 Strategic Plan

EG’s draft 2022 to 2026 Strategic Plan is here and ready for your review!

The Strategic Plan will guide the next four years of our Town to ensure we continue to provide programs and services that will support a sustainable future where residents and businesses can thrive. The Plan is made up of five strategic priorities with corresponding key deliverables that ensure East Gwillimbury remains well-planned, well-managed, and resilient.

The Plan was developed based on the feedback shared with Council while campaigning for the 2022 Municipal Election. Your feedback has helped us develop a draft Plan, which will guide our growing community for the next four years.

We want to hear from you! We’re seeking public input to confirm that the draft Strategic Plan accurately reflects the priorities of our community.  This is an opportunity to share any changes you would like to see or areas that need more work.

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 priorities 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 priorities and actions. A Community Report will be completed to provide a progress update and outline the strategic initiatives underway or accomplished. Links to Community Reports from previous Council Terms are below. 

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.
