Following guidance from the province's Restart BC Plan and new health and safety regulations from WorkSafeBC, we are taking all necessary steps to protect public health and maintain the safety of our employees.
Corporate Plan, 2015-2018
Our Corporate Plan sets strategic directions that move us closer to the shared vision of the community expressed in the Official Community Plan (OCP) over the coming four years. It also helps us fulfill our mission for service and leadership.
To achieve this, the plan translates long-term aspirations into shorter-term objectives and priority actions.
Developed by Council and staff working together, the Corporate Plan not only brings focus to essential work, but also ensures that this work is appropriately funded and resourced through Financial Plan allocations and within divisional work plans.
