The Annual Report highlights the City’s strategic goals, achievements, future priorities and the City’s financial position at the end of 2019.
Highlights from 2019 include progress on the new YMCA and the City Centre Area Plan, the adoption of an updated Strategic Plan, being named one of B.C.’s Top Employers for the third year in a row, an international win in the Communities in Bloom competition, and many advances in technology the City has implemented, such as the launch of a new City mobile app and expanded free Wi-Fi around the city.
Some of the work – including ongoing efforts to build a strong financial position through a cautious and methodical approach – has helped to lay the financial foundation that is supporting the City during the challenging times today.
