Strategic Plan

A strategic plan helps an organization give shape to future direction by identifying and prioritizing goals and outcomes.

Strategic planning is one of the most important tools that a municipality can use to bring together residents, members of Council and municipal staff in the development of a common vision, direction, and goals for a community.

It can also function as an accounting mechanism, allowing management and the public to evaluate progress and ensure that the municipality is moving in the right direction.

The 2019 to 2022 Strategic Plan was adopted by Council on November 27, 2019.

Vision: Tay Township is a strong, cohesive rural community. We celebrate and promote our unique history, natural heritage, and recreational amenities as the cornerstone to our quality of life. Our unique villages and towns support a host of events, services and businesses that contribute to growing the local economy and create a unique destination experience for residents and visitors to the community.

Mission: Tay Township is committed to delivering responsive and cost effective municipal services and infrastructure that provide for the long-term economic, social and environmental well-being of our residents and community.
