2015-2035 Strategic Plan

Our 20-year vision for Peel is "Community for Life."

Community for Life is a place where everyone enjoys a sense of belonging and has access to the services and opportunities they need to thrive throughout each stage of their lives.

Community for Life came from citizen feedback, and reflects their priorities and hopes for life in Peel. Our 2015-2035 Strategic Plan outlines the work we're focused on to bring their vision to life.

The Strategic Plan has a 20-year outlook and will be fulfilled in stages. This allows us to plan across multiple Terms of Council and take on bigger challenges than ever before

Other information

Our Regional Values define how we work together and drive our daily interactions and decisions.

  • We are empowered to make a difference
  • We are genuine and transparent
  • We are all leaders in the work we do
  • We care about everyone's well-being and success
  • We provide excellent customer service every time
  • We pursue and embrace purposeful change
  • We find and implement solutions together

The best strategy to rise to the challenges of the future is to build engaged communities capable of working together to identify innovative solutions.

That's why it's so important that this Strategic Plan, which guides our work for the next two decades, reflects the will of the people of Peel. To get those insights, we developed new ways of reaching out to the community. We used technology, creative exhibits and social media to make giving feedback easy, accessible and fun. Through that effort, we attracted a larger stakeholder group and brought more diverse voices into the discussion than ever before.

This Strategic Plan emerges directly from that community feedback. The extensive community engagement helped us build our Strategic Plan and determine our 20-year outcomes. It is, in essence, our community’s vision, reflecting their collective priorities, needs and hopes for life in Peel in 2035.

Regional booths were set up at community events to find out what matters most to the people of Peel.

Young Peel citizens share what they want "More or Less" of in the community.
