Strategic Plan 2018-2021

The CDBC is pleased and proud to present the new Strategic Plan 2018-2021, approved by the Board on March 12, 2018.

The Board began work on the College's 2018-2021 strategic planning process at its October 2017 meeting. At this meeting, the Board reviewed results of surveys and an environmental scan conducted during the summer.
Over the next few months, goals and strategies were developed to determine how the College can meet its mandate, at this current stage of the organization. The Board approved the Plan after reviewing priorities and resources available for the College. 
Strategic Planning is an important process to provide common direction and engagement of the key partners of the College. We hope we can count on your continuous collaboration and commitment to reach these goals!
