Council’s Strategic Plan, The Way Ahead 2009 - 2018, was the road map for the City of Edmonton’s work in serving the citizens of Edmonton.

The foundational components of Council’s Strategic Plan are the vision, principles and goals. The balance of the plan includes corporate outcomes for the strategic goals and provides a set of measures and targets for each outcome.

The Way Ahead Final Report

Council’s Strategic Plan, The Way Ahead 2009 - 2018, made a significant impact for Edmontonians and it changed how the City of Edmonton provides services daily for citizens.

The final report 2017 is the fourth and final annual update for The Way Ahead, which tracks Administration's achievement of Council's vision and goals over the past 10 years.

Our results are based on regular, consistent and timely measurement. This includes engagement with Edmontonians, partners and stakeholders. By ensuring multiple perspectives are reflected in our assessments, we obtain a better understanding of the effectiveness of our work.

City Council and the City of Edmonton share the desire to enable a better life for every Edmontonian. Through our 2017 final report, residents, businesses, community partners and city-builders of all types can witness what we have achieved.

Our Results: The Way Ahead Final Report gives an account of how well the City has met its goals in pursuit of its overall vision. Specifically, it:

  • Describes each performance measure and explains why it matters
  • Defines The Way Ahead (TWA) targets
  • Provides data and evidence to show our results toward the targets

Each measure is connected to a corporate outcome, and each outcome supports one or more of the 10-year strategic goals.

Edmonton’s livability and quality of life continue to improve, and the lessons learned on The Way Ahead journey will guide us toward our collective ambition for the Edmonton we all want in 2050.
