Strategic Planning Process

The release of the 2020-25 Strategic Plan comes after a collaborative process that included surveys of Ontario rowing clubs, one-on-one interviews with stakeholders, focus groups and a strategic planning session at the 2019 Ontario Rowing Association Conference that led to the creation of the Mission, Vision, Values, Goals and Priorities within the Strategic Plan.

Row Ontario would like to thank Strategic Planning Consultant Maryann Kerr of the Medalist Group for her hard work and assistance with creating the Strategic Plan and all of those in the rowing community who took part in the consultative process.

The strategic planning process was overseen by an ad-hoc committee of the Row Ontario Board of Directors which included Chris Waddell – President; Margy Braga – Director; Andrew Backer – Executive Director and Lisa Roddie – COAST Manager.
