The Way Ahead

The Way Ahead establishes six 10-year strategic goals to achieve the City’s vision for Edmonton in 2040 and to direct long-term planning for the City Of Edmonton.

The Way Ahead outlines corporate outcomes for the strategic goals and provides a set of measures and targets for each outcome.

Connecting the dots

To identify strategies to achieve the 10-year strategic goals, the City developed directional plans, also called the Ways plans. Collectively, The Way Ahead and the Ways plans form the City of Edmonton’s strategic plan.

Conditions of Success

Because much of the success of this strategy depends on the City’s operational environment, the City strives to enhance the following areas:

  • Organizational capacity (for example, fiscal and human),
  • Sound management practices and process,
  • Enabling infrastructure (for example, information technology) and
  • Effective communication.

Term of The Way Ahead

This strategic plan guides and informs the City for a 10-year planning horizon. However, we recognize that new issues, challenges, trends and opportunities will emerge throughout the 10-year life of the strategy and might require changes to the strategic plan. In addition to City Council’s annual review of the progress of implementation, an extensive review and update of the plan occurs every four years to reflect changes in the operating environment and to ensure City Council priorities are addressed.
