Strategic Priorities and Directions

2019-2024 Strategic Priorities and Directions

As we celebrate 70 years of compassionate care in 2019, we acknowledge our past success and look towards the future. Our renewed 2019-2024 Strategic Plan is an opportunity to bring a fresh perspective to our mission, vision and values and promote our direction for the next five years. We believe our world could use more good samaritans. This overarching theme informs our strategic priorities and directions, all while ensuring our activities and decisions align.

Our new Strategic Plan will be reviewed annually to ensure it reflects our changing environment, service demands and needs. This will ensure The Good Samaritan Society and Good Samaritan Canada­ are united when we are presented with new opportunities and challenges. The Strategic Plan and its four priorities guide the organization and support its ongoing evolution as our ageing residents and clients change and grow with us. Together, we can continue inspiring others through our servant leadership by demonstrating our commitment to care that’s rooted in what’s right.
