Strategic Planning, Trust Council June 2019, Galiano Island
The Islands Trust Council's priorities are guided by the Islands Trust Act, the Islands Trust Policy Statement, by advice from each of council's three standing committees, the Islands Trust Conservancy Board, local trust committees, Bowen Island Municipality and by public input now and throughout the term.
Trust Council's work is grounded in the principle of effective, efficient and collaborative governance and in the three primary goals of the Islands Trust Policy Statement: 1) ecosystem preservation and protection; 2) stewardship of island resources; 3) sustain island character and healthy communities.
The strategic plan will provide a focus for work programs throughout the Islands Trust and will form a basis for budget preparations for future fiscal years. Trust Council will receive quarterly updates from staff about progress in achieving its strategic plan, and will consider changes to the strategic plan based on changing circumstances and ongoing public input.
