PORTFOLIO

City of Terrebonne

The City of Terrebonne has chosen Espace Stratégies to support it throughout its virtual strategic planning exercise, conducted in consultation with numerous stakeholders. Espace Stratégies also participated in drafting the City’s action plan for the years 2020-2025.

Papineau RCM

Comprising 25 municipalities across a vast territory, the Papineau MRC, facing changes in its institutional environment, engaged Espace Stratégies to assist in its strategic planning process. The objectives were to define a common vision for territorial development, identify upcoming needs and challenges, formulate goals and targets for the coming years and establish a plan to foster community development.

Municipality of Saint-Sulpice

The appointment of a new mayor in Saint-Sulpice provided an ideal context for the municipality’s first strategic planning exercise. To help envision its future and explore opportunities for the development and revitalization of its territory, the municipality turned to Espace Stratégies. This exercise identified three directions aligned with the municipality’s commitment to sustainable development: revitalizing the village core, developing quality services and facilities for citizens and optimizing municipal organization.
