Waskesiu 2020 and Beyond Community Action Plan

Many Waskesiu community partners have provided their support and participation in the Waskesiu Community Council's Waskesiu Vision 2020 & Beyond Community Action Plan.

Waskesiu's Community Council made a commitment to identifying a mid-to-longer term Waskesiu “community vision" with input from the entire community, to be followed by a Community Action Plan.

The results of that collaborative work are reflected in the Vision 2020 & Beyond Community Action Plan, geared towards ensuring that Waskesiu continues to be, and is enhanced as, a vibrant, environmentally healthy, economically viable, and unique community.

Consistent with, and as a supplement to the 2000 Waskesiu Community Plan, the 2020 & Beyond Community Action Plan is designed to inform, coordinate, and help guide the future planning process in Waskesiu.

The Community Plan sets out eight major categories of key projects and activities:

  • Infrastructure
  • Image
  • Recreation and amenities
  • Visitation
  • Community life
  • Natural environment
  • Economic direction and support
  • Community planning, policy and practice

It sets out an implementation strategy from now until 2020, involving partners in the community including:

  • Waskesiu Chamber of Commerce
  • Waskesiu Recreation Association
  • Waskesiu & Area Wilderness Region Destination Marketing Organization
  • Friends of the Park
  • The Waskesiu Foundation
  • Marina operator(s)
  • Waskesiu Heritage Museum
  • Parks Canada Agency
  • A yet-to-be-formed Waskesiu Volunteer Committee
  • Waskesiu Community Council
  • Lobstick Golf Club (which operates the Waskesiu Golf Course)
  • Waskesiu Seasonal Residents Association
