Strategic Areas of Focus

On April 14, 2007, members of Environment North engaged in a Strategic Planning Session. They developed a strategic plan to guide the organisation in the coming years (view entire report). Four strategic areas of focus were developed. Environment North Committees have developed around some of these areas of focus and volunteer opportunities are available. The goals and action plans have also been developed for each area.
