  • strengthen communities by providing municipalities with clear, consistent and effective tools for community planning;
  • foster co-operation and partnerships among municipalities, governments, First Nations and Métis communities, entrepreneurs and all citizens so that they can invest in and build communities;
  • respond to requests from municipalities for more local autonomy and authority, streamlined planning processes, and clearer and more flexible ways to administer planning bylaws; and
  • ensure that the public has meaningful input before planning decisions are made, and that decision-makers are accountable.
