Comprehensive Community Planning Guidebook and Training
EcoPlan worked with the Nishnawbe Aski Development Fund (NADF) to develop a Comprehensive Community Planning Toolkit and supporting training program for NADF affiliated communities in Northern Ontario. The toolkit is designed as a step-by-step resource for First Nations staff and leadership who are involved in resourcing and delivering a Comprehensive Community Plan (CCP) project. This includes guides and tools for each phase of a values based, community driven, comprehensive strategic planning process. EcoPlan has supported several two-day training sessions in Thunder Bay for NADF communities. The Toolkit won a 2018 Canadian Institute of Planners Award for Planning Excellence in Planning Publications.
