Inputs to Plan20-50

Plan 20-50 is being developed based on: 

  • input through consultation;
  • current reports and recommendations specific to our municipalities;
  • best practice; and
  • regional planning expertise.

To achieve this, the WMR has engaged over 400 stakeholders across more than 800 touch points. This includes all levels of government represented in the region, the business community, priority industry sectors, leaders in sustainability, community advocates and individuals. 

We have also engaged experts to gather and analyze regional data, and researched best practices from across Canada and the globe.

You can see the results of the consultation to date and the reports below.

Consultation Summary Report Phase 1 

December 2019 to February 2020

Plan development began with an initial period of consultation and data gathering. This preplanning and engagement was an essential step to set the stage for the next phases of plan development. The objectives of this period of engagement were:

  • To build awareness and understanding of the mandate WMR was given to create a Regional Growth Management and Servicing Plan, including what policy areas it may contain and what it will entail;
  • To gather perspectives on shared and unique issues, challenges for the WMR and priorities to drive positive change;
  • To gather input on operational considerations and how to make the plan work “on the ground”; and
  • To identify where there are gaps in the data: what new or up-to-date information is needed to develop the policies that will best serve the capital region.
