On July 10, 2019, Halton Regional Council approved the 2019–2022 Strategic Business Plan that will guide the Region’s work over the next four years. The Plan includes five strategic themes, each with key objectives, actions and outcomes that reflect current social, demographic and economic conditions and priorities.
“Our Plan focuses on building on our successes and working with our partners to deliver on opportunities to enhance the quality of life in Halton,” said Halton Regional Chair Gary Carr. “I would like to thank everyone who took the time to provide their input into this Plan. It reflects what we have heard and what matters most to the community.”
The Plan was shaped through feedback from the public, collected through a consultation process that included an online survey, social media engagement and open houses held in Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville. Consultation also took place with community partners, stakeholders and Local Municipalities that partner with the Region to deliver programs and services to residents and businesses.
The five strategic themes and focus for the next four years include:
- Planning and Growth Management;
- Transportation and Infrastructure;
- Community Well-Being;
- Environmental Sustainability and Climate Change; and
- Effective Government.
Regional Council will continue to work closely with its Federal, Provincial and Local partners to implement the new Plan, deliver on the strategic themes and find collaborative solutions to emerging issues. The Plan will be monitored and updated to reflect any future significant Provincial changes that may impact the Region.
In keeping with the Region’s commitment to accountability and progress on the themes, objectives and outcomes will be reviewed and reported to Regional Council on an annual basis.
