Strategic Planning Update
As we head into the summer months, I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the strategic planning process so far – through Town Halls, department presentations or one-on-one meetings with leaders throughout the organization. The feedback that the Senior Management Team has received has been used to further define our strategic goals and priorities. We have made significant progress as we move through this iterative process, shaping our future through shared interests and adaptive learning. I will provide an update on the evolving plan at the Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, June 14th and encourage all of you to attend to get the latest information.
