On April 1, 2015, Halton Regional Council approved the Halton Region Strategic Action Plan 2015-2018. The approved Plan is the successor to the Citizens’ Priorities Action Plan 2011-2014 and sets out the strategic direction and priorities for the Region over for the current term of Council.

Regional Council’s Strategic Action Plan focuses on delivering high quality, cost-efficient programs and services that meet the evolving needs of the community. As a result of Council’s extensive consultations with residents, businesses, community partners and regional staff, I am confident that the Plan reflects the priorities and needs of the entire community. By working together, we have shaped a bright future for Halton Region.

Through the consultation process, sixteen priorities have been identified for the term of council and are organized into six priority areas:

  • Planning Healthy, Complete Communities focuses on planning for complete, active, healthy communities served by high-quality infrastructure.
  • Growing the Regional Economy focuses on what is needed to support and sustain a strong regional economy and agricultural sector.
  • Connecting People and Services focuses on ensuring all residents have easy access to the services they require.
  • Governing for the Future focuses on ensuring the Region continues to maintain a strong financial foundation.
  • Adapting to Climate Change focuses on ensuring Halton Region is prepared to respond to weather related events and other emergencies.
  • Protecting the Natural Environment focuses on protecting and enhancing Halton’s natural environment and reducing our ecological footprint.

The Plan also identifies 96 measurable actions to be undertaken over the term of Council to address each priority and to ensure progress and achievements are tracked and reported.
