The 2020-21 Strategic Priorities Plan was ratified by Regional Council on November 12, 2019.
The Strategic Priorities Plan reflects the Halifax Regional Municipality’s key areas of focus, and results, in making a difference in the lives of residents.
In June 2019, Regional Council directed staff to produce a report that would help increase transparency of the business planning and budget process – while also improving clarity, reducing inefficiencies in the reporting and presentation process, and ensuring continuity of information over the duration of Council’s mandate.
The report consolidates the work of nine Council and Administrative Priority Areas into one document providing for a unified view of Regional Council’s 2017-21 Strategic Plan. This approach will also eliminate the production of nine Council and Administrative Priority presentations; these presentations will be replaced with one presentation that is consistent in both style and approach to the Strategic Priorities Plan report. This consistency will be extended to the development of the business plan template which will be contained in 2020-21 Municipal Budget and Business Plan Book.
