Creating the Plan

This plan is the culmination of a thoughtful and purposeful process that actively sought the input of many stakeholders over a 10-month period to ensure that we understand the needs of Northern Ontarians. We first performed an environmental scan to understand where there are existing opportunities for the School. Over 1,000 stakeholders were then consulted through various methods (in-person community visits, online surveys, focus groups) to receive feedback on the School’s 2010-2015 vision, mission, and values and to determine which of the opportunities identified from the environmental scan are the most important to them.

Reflecting on our strengths, our shifting environmental context, and the perspectives gathered through our extensive engagement activities, we have developed this Strategic Plan to guide our efforts from 2015 to 2020.
