2020-27 Strategic Plan
Together with our member clubs, athletes, coaches, umpires, volunteers, parents, partners and other stakeholders, Row Ontario hopes to create a fulfilling experience for everyone in the Ontario rowing community through the duration of the strategic plan.
Strategic Planning Process
The 2020-27 Strategic Plan was approved by the Row Ontario Board of Directors in March 2023. Row Ontario created a 2020-24 Strategic Plan in late-2019 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. A one-year extension to that plan was announced in June of 2020, however due the shifting landscape of the Ontario rowing community and the greater sport community brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic over the last three years, a new Strategic Plan for the next four years was necessary.
The 2020-27 Strategic Plan features Vision and Mission statements as well as the five core values of Collaboration, Equity, Excellence, Innovation and Integrity, that will guide all activities and actions of the organization. Ten new or updated strategic goals have been identified as critical to ensure the sport of rowing continues to grow and develop. The strategic goals fall under the four strategic pillars of Sustainability, Engagement, Sport Delivery and Athlete Development.
