June 14, 2023 – Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) is developing a new strategic plan that will guide the organization’s work from 2023 to 2027 while looking ahead to 2051. CVC is seeking input from the community to help shape the strategic plan.
Between June 12 and 30, residents in and visitors to the Credit River Watershed are encouraged to fill out CVC’s online Strategic Plan Survey. Help identify what areas of CVC’s work are most important to you and what CVC should focus on to proactively address the opportunities and challenges of the future. Take the survey at cvc.ca.StrategicPlanSurvey.
“We’re crafting a new strategic plan that is bold and inspiring,” says Quentin Hanchard, Chief Administrative Officer of Credit Valley Conservation. “We value the input from our watershed community. We want to hear what your hope is for the local environment to help guide our work.”
When you complete the Strategic Plan Survey, you can enter for a chance to win one of 10 $75 Credit Valley Parks gift cards. Gifts cards can be put towards an annual Parks Pass, event tickets, equipment rentals and more. For full contest rules, visit cvc.ca/ContestRules.
CVC’s strategic plan is a guidance document that will outline the mission and vision and provide big-picture goals as well as the ways to achieve them. Using a long-term view, the organization is also considering trends that will shape the watershed over the next 30 years. Trends include:
- Population growth
- Changing landscapes
- Climate change
- Digital lifestyles
Community input from the survey will inform the final version of the 2023-2027 Strategic Plan. CVC has also been seeking input from their municipal partners, CVC’s Board of Directors, local non-governmental organizations, Indigenous partners and staff. The final plan will be presented to CVC’s Board of Directors for endorsement in November 2023. For more information visit cvc.ca/StrategicPlan.
