Corporate Strategy

North Glengarry Corporate Strategic Plan 2019-2023

With its unique and vibrant community, the Township of North Glengarry possesses an enviable quality of life, which is reflected in its rural and small-town character.  The Township is committed to preserving its agricultural and natural resources, its historical and cultural heritage, and its quality municipal services.  The Council of the Township of North Glengarry is united in their desire to do what is right for the Township by building a foundation for a great future and working with committed staff who are dedicated to making a difference.

The Township faces several challenges, but also has many exciting opportunities.  We need to ensure the Township remains viable and sustainable in the future.  This requires continued investment in our municipal assets and infrastructure, to ensure that we continue to offer exemplary services to the residents of North Glengarry. 

The purpose of developing a Corporate Strategic Plan is to establish where a community, as a whole, wants to be in the future and what actions will be taken to get there. The strategic priorities included in this plan are in addition to the ongoing critical work that is carried out by the Township Staff in each of its departments. 

We asked five questions of our residents and stakeholders to gather information on: Strengths, Challenges, Values, Vision and Priorities. We gathered this information from multiple sources: online and hard copy surveys, one-on-one interviews, focus groups, and strategic planning sessions.  We received 464 survey responses, completed 10 one-on-one interviews, conducted 4 focus groups with a variety of groups from the community, and held a Council and Staff Strategic Visioning Session.

From our Community Consultations and Strategic Planning Session, the result was that North Glengarry is a great place to live!  The strengths and values that were identified were: the people, our location, community assets, the natural environment, our culture and rich history. This Strategic Plan is focused on those values and sets achievable goals grouped into three main strategic focus areas: Infrastructure; Assets; and, Services.

The strategic goals and objectives and related action plan are detailed in this Corporate Strategic Plan.  The actions were formulated as a result of council priorities and community feedback.  Staff are committed to achieving these goals through the action plan and departmental workplans.
