CLFN Comprehensive Community Plan

CLFN Comprehensive Community Plan

Come together to tell stories and develop a vision for the future of CLFN.

We are developing a Comprehensive Community Plan to provide CLFN with a road map for the future of the Nation. The Comprehensive Community Plan will be driven and “owned” by CLFN members whose input will inform the long-term vision and success of CLFN in the future. The Comprehensive Community Plan will be developed alongside the CLFN Lands Plan. This plan will inform direction taken by Chief and Council in the future in accordance with the vision of CLFN members. Comprehensive community planning takes a holistic approach to community planning and includes all facets of the community.

The Comprehensive Community Plan, once finished can:

  • Inspire the Community: To work towards a common future vision.
  • Increase Efficiency: Create a plan of action that utilizes all members in the community the best way possible.
  • Strengthen Administration: Improve internal communications, improve management of staff and skill sets.
  • Map Future Development: Use identified priorities to plan to address future community development and infrastructure needs.
  • Preserve Resources: Identify and protect valuable traditions, areas, values and practices.
  • Celebrate Culture and Traditions: Throughout the planning process, and through action items identified through the CCP.
  • Promote Reconciliation: Address painful community issues together, by establishing a community vision and working towards achievement of this vision.
  • Create Economic Opportunities: Identify economic opportunities to promote investment and growth in the region.
