Strategic Plan

Public Health helps people stay well. As an essential part of the healthcare system, we are committed to the health and well-being of the communities we serve.

WDG Public Health’s Strategic Plan 2016-2020 has been developed to establish priorities, guide decision-making, align resources and inspire staff. It will build on our past accomplishments and help us define what success will look like for the next five years and beyond.

Vision, Mission, Mandate and Values

WDG Public Health’s vision is our shared hope for the future. Along with our mission, mandate and values, our vision connects us to a common purpose and provides the foundation for all of our activities.
