The City's Business Plan is one of the key tools within the corporate framework established by the City's Strategic Plan that will help us reach our strategic goals and objectives, as well as maintain and improve the City's core services.

The Business Plan is updated twice a year to provide additional transparency and accountability to the community. The 2019/2020 Business Plan includes highlights from Cambridge's 2020 Draft Budget.

What does the Business Plan do?

Developed under the guidance of the Corporate Leadership Team, Senior Management Team and staff across the corporation, the City's 2019/2020 Business Plan provides further direction to all staff at the City and is a resource tool for both the public and Council. 

The Business Plan provides: 

  • An overview of the corporate structure
  • Detailed information for each suppoting department and division
  • A description of the core services provided
  • Staffing and budget information
  • A detailed work plan that links key departmental activities (strategic actions and initiatives) with the Strategic Plan 

The City identifies 41 strategic actions, with 126 active initiatives or projects occurring in one or more City departments in 2019 and 2020. This is above and beyond the core services delivered to the community as part of the day-to-day operations of the City.
