Communities served by the THU include Temiskaming Shores, Kirkland Lake, Englehart, Elk Lake, and Matachewan.

This report outlines the process and results of the THU’s 2012 strategic planning exercise. The purpose of this strategic plan is to provide direction and guidance for operational decision making for the period 0f 2012-2017. The strategic planning process utilized an Appreciative Inquiry approach to understand and leverage the organization’s key strengths.

The stakeholder engagement process included employee summits, interviews with partners and other community organizations, and surveys of the general public. The consulting team also conducted SWOT and environmental scans, as well as an analysis of relevant documentation and a literature review.
