2016–2017 Business Plan

Magazines Canada will deliver a robust program based on three key objectives: Connect. Inspire. Advance. The 2016–17 business plan reflects a series of key transition points in the association’s organizational development, and includes initiatives from the current strategic plan (ending 2017) as well as emerging external issues that will require Magazines Canada’s attention in the coming year.

2014–2017 Strategic Planning Framework

As at January 27, 2014

Magazines Canada’s Board of Directors completed a process of review and revision of the association’s key objectives and strategies. The process started in August 2013, culminating in the development of this planning framework. The framework will be used to build business plans beginning with the next fiscal year (April 1, 2014). The directors used member surveys, participation data, consultative committee contributions and program/project evaluations to determine how the association has been performing and where it should invest its capacity for the next several years.

Members gave the association a very good report card. Magazines Canada is a high-performing and innovative organization, and it is highly regarded among all industry stakeholders. Member commitment remains strong, and new members continue to join. The association has adjusted well to overall industry resource constraints.

It is from this success that the organization will move forward and remain responsive to the industry’s constantly evolving ecosystem and the expectations this environment creates. The scope of association activity will serve member aspirations for service and innovation within more limited resources. The framework directs the organization to be focused and flexible. While the directors recognize that this is no small task, they have confidence in staff leadership and are fully committed to ensuring that the association meets its member-driven goals and objectives.
