    Each term, the Board sets the strategic priorities, policy and direction that guide the activities of the organization. Service planning provides information necessary to create a financial plan and to evaluate overall organizational requirements, new initiatives, proposed service levels and financial implications.

    The CRD Board Priorities were developed at the start of the Board term in 2019 and formed the basis of the CRD’s 2019-2022 Corporate Plan. This plan includes fifteen community need summaries which describe services and initiatives that directly contribute to meeting the most pressing regional needs in the CRD. Community need summaries contain the initiatives, associated staffing, timing and service levels required to support each of the 15 community needs and organizational requirements for 2023.

    Financial indicators provide insight on trends and measures of organizational and financial performance. They are complemented by asset management and policy development regarding debt management, reserve levels, risk management and facility lifecycles. They also enable better monitoring of expenditures and investments in light of continued service delivery demands.
