The Strategic Plan sets the direction for the Township of Malahide and serves as a guiding document. With input from residents, landowners, business leaders and community partners,  the Strategic Plan reflects the needs and expectations of the Community. 
The newly-adopted Strategic Plan is based on community input, gained through an extensive public engagement process, and outlines the Township’s vision, mission, and values, strategic priorities, and reaching tangible results. The Strategic Plan will guide Council and Township Staff moving forward in the development of budgets, operational plans, and how we serve residents on a day-to-day basis.
