Northumberland County’s 2019-2023 Strategic Plan represents a shared long-term vision for our community. This plan will guide the decisions and actions of Northumberland County Council and staff as we strive to fulfill the County’s Vision, Mission and Core Values.


To bring together people, partnerships and possibilities for a strong and vibrant Northumberland County.


To be a best practices leader in county government, and a collaborative partner with member municipalities and community partners.


  • Accountability
  • Care & Support
  • Collaboration & Communication
  • Honesty & Integrity
  • Innovation & Excellence
  • Mutual Trust & respect

The development of this plan involved consultation with Council, staff and members of the public. The end result is a well-informed plan that positions actions in response to the opportunities and challenges facing our community.


The Strategic Plan is based on four interconnected priorities, under which all goals and objectives are aligned: 

  • Economic Prosperity and Innovation
  • Sustainable Growth
  • Thriving and Inclusive Communities
  • Leadership in Change 

Northumberland County will regularly assess its progress in delivering the strategic priorities outlined in this plan. This includes reporting on actions taken to achieve the stated goals and objectives, and on alignment of key outcomes with overall strategic direction. Reports and updates will be posted to this page as a quick reference resource for the community.
