What our priorities are
The department’s priorities are drawn from the ministerial charter letter and are set out in our strategic plan. Strategic plans have a four-year horizon and are reviewed annually to ensure they continue to reflect government priorities and the macro environment.
The department uses the strategic plan to guide its annual operational planning and program of work.
The strategic plan for the department is still being prepared following the election and resulting machinery of government changes*. It is expected to be completed and available soon.
We are also committed to managing our impact on the environment through waste reduction and recycling activities and initiatives (PDF, 648 KB).
