2024-2028 Strategic Plan

College Council approved a new five-year strategic plan on October 5, 2023. The plan guides how the College fulfils its public interest mandate from January 1, 2024 to December 31, 2028.

The 2024-2028 strategic plan builds upon the successes of our previous five-year plan. It is the product of several months of engagement and consultation with external and internal stakeholders, including federations, faculties, school boards, parents’ groups, and Indigenous advisors.
