Strategic Plan

Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit Strategic Plan 2024-2026

This is a foundational document that outlines our priorities for the coming 3 years, and will help us respond to changes to community needs and program delivery requirements. It is also a tool for us to communicate our priorities with our partners and the communities we serve. And lastly, we will use these priorities to inform the organization’s strategic and operational decisions.

This plan flows from the comments and ideas shared by our staff, managers, Board members, partners, and members of the public—thank you for your engagement in this process! I look forward to continuing to work with you to improve the health of our communities.
