Gatineau has set in motion the development of its next strategic plan. The exercise will equip Gatineau with a sustainable vision for the future and determine how to achieve it.

The plan is an important tool for connecting municipal actions to the needs of residents and thereby converging everyone's efforts towards common objectives.

The strategic planning exercise will involve an initial round of public consultations. Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • share their experience of living in Gatineau;
  • express their views about the challenges and opportunities ahead for Gatineau; and
  • guide the thinking about Gatineau's future.

As you prepare for the public consultation, we invite you to review the document entitled A Conversation About Gatineau's Future (in French only).

If you are unable to attend any of the public consultation activities, you can send us your comments by email to You will likely find the questions in the discussion document helpful.

Key steps

Development of the strategic plan began in the winter of 2019 and should wrap up in late 2020, with the adoption of the plan by the Municipal Council. It will include two stages of consultation.


A steering committee consisting of Mayor Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin, municipal councillors Renée Amyot, Maude Marquis-Bissonnette and Gilles Carpentier, and resident Sylvie Daigle, will oversee and guide the strategic planning process. Municipal executives will also be actively involved in the work.

A consultative committee consisting of departmental directors will also contribute to the process.
