Imagine the Future

CICan is renewing its Strategic Plan for 2019-2024. As part of this process, we are committed to undertaking extensive consultations, having as many meaningful conversations as possible, and engaging staff, members and stakeholders. The new Plan will be launched on April 1, 2019.

Engagement is at the heart of the process that will be followed over the next year or so. In order to remind ourselves every step of the way, to capture our excitement and engagement, and to inspire key stakeholders to embrace the future and what’s yet to come, we’ve branded the engagement process as:

We are committing to the following engagement principles:

Build trust through transparency & responsiveness

Be clear and open about the process, and provide reports to all stakeholders who participate including range of views and ideas expressed. Meaningful and responsive engagement builds trust and confidence in CICan’s commitment to listening and meeting members’ needs in the future.

Encourage collaboration

Support and encourage staff, Board Directors, Presidents of member institutions to work together, reach out to people they know to further engagement.

Encourage openness & learning

Create a safe environment to explore new ideas, learn and apply information in ways that generate options collaboratively and make sure engagement is effective and relevant.

Set clear expectations

Set expectations about the purpose of the engagement (in whichever form it will take) and how much influence people have over the outcomes.

Be inclusive & reflect diversity

Include a wide range of people, voices, ideas, and information to lay the groundwork for results that reflect the views of all stakeholders.
