ABOUT THE SIX NATIONS  COMMUNITY PLAN

The Six Nations Community Plan is a living document that reflects the values, vision and direction of the community in order to guide development towards a positive future. The current Community Plan (available below) was created in 2018-19 from the voices of community members, leaders and organizations. The Community Plan sets out our vision for a bright future and a path to get there. It is organized into 8 interdependent priorities.

  • Mother Earth
  • Culture
  • Governance
  • Community
  • Built Environment
  • Employment & Education
  • Wealth & Economy
  • Wellbeing

HOW YOU CAN USE  THE COMMUNITY PLAN

A Community Plan is a long-term planning tool used to achieve social, economic and environmental sustainability. Everyone in our community has a responsibility to make this our vision for the future a reality.
