Cornerstone Planning Group was commissioned to support the Geographical Names Board of Canada (GNBC) in developing their new Strategic Plan (2020-2025). The Board provides pan-Canada leadership and coordination for official place names, and this Plan was developed to guide their direction, objectives and activities over the next five years.
- the relevance of past strategic objectives
- challenges experienced by the GNBC in fulfilling their mandate
- successes and challenges in monitoring the GNBC progress
Four strategic projects were developed in the Final Report to facilitate management of activities and reporting of progress:
Review GNBC Role Mandate & Governance
Enhance Internal Communication & Collaboration Initiatives
Improve GNBC Database content and Management
Enhance Profile & External
Cornerstone’s framework approach ensured that the Strategic Plan and its supporting projects were implementable with the organization’s current resources and measurable in their outcomes.
