In 2011, the City of Timmins and its community partners, the Timmins Economic Development Corporation and the Timmins Chamber of Commerce, oversaw the development of a community strategic plan. Consultants were hired to coordinate the process and develop the plan. Over the course of several months, the consulting team held various consultation sessions throughout the region, and conducted intensive research to determine what strategic priorities would be the best fit for Timmins.
The result was Timmins 2020, an eight-year strategic plan aimed to change Timmins for the better by the year 2020. It provides long-term direction and includes an implementation plan for economic and community development in Timmins. The plan’s objectives centered around five main pillars or strategic directions: communications, community pride, economic diversification, community investment and quality of life. Each direction encompasses three or more specific projects that help improve Timmins in that area.
