Strategic goals 2021-24

The Strategic Plan for 2021-2024 is under review.

Strategic goals 2016-2020

With the expiry of the previous Strategic Plan in 2016, the CTO Council decided to embark on the development of a new Strategic Plan which would transform the organisation and create added value for its members.  The 2016-2020 Strategic Plan was based on the Outline Statement, comments received from CTO members, as well as the services of an external consultant engaged by the organisation. The theme of the 2016-2020 Strategic Plan was Transforming the CTO for Enhanced Value for its Membership.
