ICF Releases Strategic Priorities and Operations Plan
November 9, 2017
Nanaimo, BC – The Board of Directors of the Island Corridor Foundation is pleased to confirm the release of its new Strategic Priorities and Operations Plan. The release marks the culmination of a planning process that began last fall. Though it may be amended from time to time to respond to changing conditions or new information, this document is intended to guide the work of the Foundation over the next five years.
Then Plan includes:
- a brief historical overview, along with information about the rail corridor, the Foundation’s governance/staff structure and key organizational achievements to date;
- results from an online feedback form designed to gather comments and feedback from the public regarding an earlier, preliminary draft of the Plan released in the spring;
- a detailed summary of the four main focus areas, including key activities, opportunities, risks and key goals for implementation over the next five years;
- a five-year budget; and,
- a discussion of critical success factors for the years ahead.
In total, the Board has endorsed twenty-nine (29) operational goals within the four key focus areas. This includes approval of a preferred Phase 1 rail infrastructure option.
With the Strategic Priorities and Operations Plan as a framework, the Board will now turn its attention to implementation, with an immediate emphasis on re-confirming financial commitments to commence the proposed Phase 1 rail infrastructure upgrades.
The ICF wishes to thank everyone who provided input on the draft version of the plan during the public consultation phase earlier this year. Download the ICF Strategic Priorities and Operations Plan here, or contact the Island Corridor Foundation at email@example.com for a copy.
