Plan the future of Kitchener with us!

Kitchener’s strategic plan is our community’s shared vision for the future of our City. We’re working on our 2023-2026 strategic plan and want you to be part of the planning process.

What should we focus on 4 years and even 20 years from now? Have your say and share your vision with us. Your input will help us build a strategic plan that best reflects the unique needs of our community – and develop a 20-year vision for the future of our City.

There are plenty of ways to share your ideas and input:

The vision will guide future City priorities and decisions that will move us toward a shared long-term future. The strategic plan will identify key goals and actions the City will take over the next four years to move us closer to achieving that vision.

Engaging you in this important work ensures that we are aligning our efforts with the needs of the community. And equally important, it builds trust with residents, knowing they can count on their local government to deliver the valued programs and services that they need.

Hearing what is most important to you has never been more important than it is today. Plan with us, Kitchener needs your voice, join the conversation!

Share Your Vision

Help us define a new vision for Kitchener’s future!  

We are creating a 20-year vision for the City of Kitchener that will chart a path for Kitchener’s future. This vision will guide City priorities and decisions that move us toward that shared future.  Your contributions will help us define that vision and may be featured in future communications about the strategic plan.   

Tell us your hopes and dreams for the future of our city. What should we aspire to as a City? What should we work to achieve over the next 20 years?  

Write, draw, paint, take a photo, perform, or otherwise create and share your hopes for the Kitchener of 20 years from now! Creativity is encouraged.   

How do I share my vision? 

Start by giving your post a title and then add your materials. If you are posting visuals of any kind, please also include a short description of your hopes and aspirations for the Kitchener of 2043.  

Here are some questions to inspire you: 

  • With a focus on the Kitchener we would like to have in 2043, what is the Kitchener we want to create for future generations? 

  • Imagine it’s 2043 and you have a new neighbour who just moved here from another city. What is the city like now? What would you tell them about how the city has changed? What have we accomplished over the last 20 years? 

Want to submit a photo? Read this first: 

Let’s protect each other’s privacyPlease do not post photos where the person or people being photographed could be easily identified. That means a photo of people’s backs or of crowds is fine. But a picture of one or a few people directly facing the camera is not. Regretfully, we need to remove photos that do not meet our privacy policy.  

What if I don’t have a way to upload my art or photo? 

We want everyone to be able to share their vision. Bring your materials to your nearest community centre and a staff member will help you out. You can also bring your materials to any one of our pop-ups or events 

Important! 

All posts and content must meet our Moderation Policy 

By posting your future vision of the city, you are consenting to the City of Kitchener using the content of your post in City publications related to this project. This might include social media, future policy documentsor staff reports. 

We may contact you about your post in case we have questions or would like to use your post in some other way.  

If you have any questions about the collection or use of your materials, please contact Angie Fritz-Walters at angie.fritz-walters@kitchener.ca or 519-741-2200 ext. 7059 

Thank you for sharing your vision with us!

    A warm community hug

    by Anonymouse , 6 days ago
    In 2043…


    Kitchener’s community building programs have continued to grow and thrive, so most people feel connected to their neighbours in some way. All communities have gathering spaces like small parks, which have community message boards that announce events and things to do for people of all ages- even if you live in less suburban places.

    Kitchener has invested in an engaged citizenry- municipal voting is at an all time high! We’re welcoming young people into government by giving them meaningful ways to contribute to how the city looks for them. We’ve made running for municipal office super easy, and... Continue reading
