Strategic Plan

Note: The Content Team is working to update this information. Thank you for your interest and patience.

The City of Saint John is developing a 10-Year Strategic Plan. The plan will identify a renewed vision for the City and a new set of long-term goals that will move our community forward in achieving its vision. It will serve as a management tool to improve the City’s performance and align with existing plans, including the Long-term Financial Plan, PlanSJ, and MoveSJ.

To help guide this process, the City of Saint John has established a Strategic Plan Steering Committee. The Committee includes seven members -- the Mayor, three members of Common Council, and three members of the public chosen through an application process through nominating committee.

While a Staff Working Group will be responsible for the project deliverables, the Steering Committee will lead engagement and guide the Staff Working Group in the strategic planning process. The Committee’s primary functions will be to:
-    Review output of Staff Working Group
-    Provide guidance and direction
-    Approve Guiding Principles
-    Recommend strategic planning policy to Council
-    Review public engagement
-    Recommend completed Plan to Council

The 10-year Strategic Plan is expected to be completed and presented to Saint John Common Council for approval in the fall of 2022.
