Our New Strategic Plan
Credit Valley Conservation’s (CVC) current strategic plan, Our Future Taking Shape, built upon the foundation of Our Future to Shape (2015-2019) and has provided direction for the organization from 2020-2022. As the term for this guiding document comes to an end, and we reflect on all we have accomplished together during this period, we look to initiate the process of developing the next iteration of the plan to chart our course moving forward.
Our new strategic plan will look ahead to 2051. It will allow us to dream big and craft a new vision for the future that is bold and inspiring. This strategic plan will guide our work from 2023 to 2027, keeping our long-term vision in mind.
We Want Your Input
As a public agency, a key part of engaging stakeholders on the development of the new plan is connecting with those who live, work and play in our watershed. We’re looking for feedback from our valued watershed residents and visitors.
Help us identify what areas of our work are most important to you and what we should focus on to proactively address the opportunities and challenges of the future. Complete our online survey between June 12 and June 30, 2023.
Thank you for your input. Our survey is now closed.
Frequently Asked Questions
A strategic plan is our guidance document. It spells out our orgnaization’s mission and vision and provides big-picture goals as well as the ways to achieve them. It allows us to plan proactively with a long-term view. A long-term view gives us greater certainty in planning and setting year-to-year priorities and deliverables and defines the bar that we are trying to meet and exceed through program delivery.
Public feedback will be reviewed and considered, along with the input provided by staff and other stakeholders consulted, to ensure that our new vision, mission, guiding principles, and priorities, are aligned with the needs, interests and priorities of those who live work and play in our watershed and engage with our programs and services.
The new strategic plan will be finalized and brought forward to CVC’s Board of Directors for approval at the December 2023 Board meeting. We will be sharing the plan with the public in early 2024.
