The Ontario Plan

Welcome to The Ontario Plan

The Ontario Plan is a dynamic Framework for sustained, comprehensive leadership in building our community.  It integrates components of city governance that are typically disconnected.  The Plan states community direction at a point in time (2020) and integrates it into a single guidance system that will shape the Ontario community 20 years or more into the future (2050).  The Ontario Plan provides for lasting policies to accommodate change. 

It consists of a six part Component Framework: 

  1. Vision
  2. Governance Manual
  3. Policy Plan (General Plan)
  4. City Council Priorities
  5. Implementation
  6. Tracking and Feedback
