Foundation for the Future


Since the 2018 election, Council has undertaken many new initiatives and projects, pursued important issues, and made strategic investments in the community. In the context of this work, key areas of focus have emerged through Council’s leadership. These include climate change and the environment, housing, social issues, recreation for Delta families, supporting the local economy, and fostering a great sense of community throughout the City.

All of these areas of focus are addressed under overarching core values:

  • Fiscal responsibility
  • Public safety
  • Diversity and inclusion
  • Intergovernmental relations
  • Transparency

The Foundation for the Future has become clear through Council’s decisions and direction on a variety of issues and have already formed the basis for many of staff’s efforts to serve the community. Formalizing the pillars that support this Foundation in a clear and simple document will further ensure that the key issues for Council continue to be the basis for the City’s business.

Each pillar includes a primary goal as well as a series of objectives that can be found here. Progress on Foundation for the Future will be reported to Council on a regular basis using effective measures and indicators, including in the Annual Report.
