Strategic Plan 2022-2026

Propulsion, Balance, Alignment

A strategic plan creates forward momentum – propulsion.

To successfully move forward we balance daily operational demands and strategic priorities with available resources.

To move forward in the desired direction, we seek alignment with stakeholders.

After comprehensive consultation with the sailing community across Ontario and countless hours of work by volunteers, staff, and an external consultant, the Ontario Sailing Board of Directors approved a new strategic plan for Ontario Sailing to set the course for the next four years. 

The plan is available to view here:
