Strategic Plan 2020-2024

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Durham Region is updating our Strategic Plan and we want to hear from our community about the issues and priorities that matter most to you!

Why is it important?

The Strategic Plan is our community vision and blueprint. It helps us define a set of common goals, and prioritize those things that matter most to you, our residents. We want to deliver services to the community in an effective way, and modernize our operations so that we are working efficiently and maintaining a high standard of customer service. The health and prosperity of our community is important to every single resident. That’s why we need to create a step-by-step plan that outlines how we will accomplish these goals. Not only will we strive to meet these goals, but we will measure our performance along the way and report back to Regional Council and the community, to ensure we are on the right track.

What opportunities will there be for citizens to get involved?

There are many ways to get involved, whether in person or online! Sign up today to be part of our mailing list and receive email notifications of online and in-person engagement opportunities. We will be at community events throughout the summer, and holding a series of Town Hall discussions to learn more about what matters most to you. We want to hear from our community—your voices and ideas matter to us! Email stratplan@durham.ca if you would like to be invited to a specific session noted on the site under "Key Dates".

Congratulations to Michael Cheung of Pickering, who completed our Strategic Plan Community Survey by noon on September 30th, and whose name was pulled from all eligible prize entries as the winner of the Ecobee 4 Smart Home Thermostat! Thanks to all who participated in our Strategic Plan survey and in-person consultations during our public engagement phase. We value your input to this process!

    Diamond of Durham

    by KatLady, 11 months ago

    This is the Diamond of Durham - The Thomas Foster Memorial in Uxbridge Ontario built in 1936 for $250,000 of Byzantine architecture. The acoustics are the "science of sound" and there is a concert every Friday night May to Sept with admission a donation at the door so all levels of income can attend as often as they like. The Foster entertains many different ethnic groups and the diversity of Durham Region is to be celebrated. Also our Jazz/Blues concert in October has the best in Jazz/Blues. Visit www.fostermemorial.com
