Economic Development – Surveys, Applications, Information

Community Comprehensive Plan

Comprehensive Community Plans, also known as CCP, take a holistic look at the community. For the case of Ugpi’ganjig, our CCP will focus on the following topic areas;

Topic Areas for Ugpiganjigs CCP

Economic Development
Lands
Education
Language & Culture
Employment & Training
Natural Resources
Governance
Social Development
Health
Sports & Recreation
Housing & Infrastructure

CCPs establish a community vision and objectives that guide all other planning and decision-making (e.g. Treaty implementation, development of an Economic Development Plan, Housing Plan, Land Use Plan). CCPs include community values and provide a roadmap for the community’s future. CCPs also include action plans for how the community can work towards its vision. As Ugpi’ganjig grows and changes, a CCP can grow and change with it.
