In early 2021, Women and Gender Equality Canada, awarded the then NG Pride Inc. a grant with the objective of hiring an Executive Director to create a strategic plan that would help guide our organization over the next 3 years. The strategic planning process was led by a volunteer Board of Directors along with their newly appointed Executive Director. This strategic planning process took place over the course of 12 months.
Throughout our many conversations and surveys three main priorities were identified by our stakeholders. NG Pride will be focusing on Education, advocacy/celebrate and reducing the social isolation that so many of our LGBTQ2S+ community are experiencing living in a rural Ontario community.
NG Pride would like to thank every individual that took part in making this process not only productive but also so inspiring. The support the community has shown for the growth and development of K.P has been outstanding, and it is our hope that the lines of communication will remain open and fluid so NG Pride will continue to evolve and grow with the needs of our 2SLGBTQI+ community members top of mind!
