2023-2026 Strategic Plan

During each elected term, Athabasca County Council gathers with their senior managers to determine the best way to meet the needs of County residents now and into the future. To that end, in November 2022, Council and Administration met to develop the strategic plan which can be read below. The Plan is made up of Council’s expressed goals for the County and provides County citizens, businesses, organizations, and other community stakeholders with an indication of a bright future for Athabasca County.

The strategic plan is built upon four pillars, each containing specific goals of what Council hopes to accomplish during their term. The pillars include:

  1. Strengthening our Economy
  2. Investing in Infrastructure and our Environment
  3. A Community that Cares
  4. Effective Leadership & Organizational Excellence

Goals have been created to support each pillar. Across all pillars, five key goals have been identified:

  1. Create development guidelines for county and region
  2. Maintain safe and reliable county infrastructure
  3. Enhance and strengthen regional relationships
  4. Strengthen our governance structure
  5. Provide strong engagement with our community
