Peel Public Health strategic plan

2020 to 2029 Strategic Priorities for the Future.

The 2020 to 2029 Strategic Priorities for the Future presents 5 strategic priorities based on the public health needs of Peel residents, now and in the future. The priorities were informed by local data and input from partner organizations, Public Health clients and staff.

The Ontario Public Health Standards require all Boards of Health to identify their priorities through a multi-year strategic plan. All public health work is important. However, some areas of our work require a level of attention, planning and additional resourcing to achieve significant gains in the health of the community. This work is referred to as our strategic priorities.
