In 2013, Esquimalt Nation worked with its members to develop a Comprehensive Community Plan (CCP) that reflects the Nation’s Sacred Trust. This planning initiative has been the cornerstone to the strategic planning and development process for the Nation and its administrative departments. The Sacred Trust embodies the important relationship between the land, water, and resources; community family and individual; the cultural and spiritual path; and the Esquimalt Nation land treaty. The Esquimalt Nation continues to identify strategies to move the membership forward by capitalizing on the opportunities presented by the urban location of the community, while respecting the Nation’s heritage.
Esquimalt Nation administrative staff has been successful in acquiring funds to update the CCP throughout 2019/20 fiscal, ad well as incorporating department specific plans that will articulate objective and goals over the next 5 years (2024/2025).
