Public Health Strategic Plan

Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is working to advance the health of Ottawa residents through its new Strategic Plan: Building a Healthier Ottawa: Ottawa Public Health (OPH) Strategic Plan 2015-2018 [PDF 3 MB]. This plan provides a clear picture of the pressing public health issues facing our communities today and looks forward to identify the areas that would benefit from strengthened efforts. 

The plan includes five Strategic Directions that demonstrate OPH's commit ment to the vision, mission, and principles that underlie the services it provides to advance health promotion and disease protection in our community. The five Strategic Directions are:

  1. Inspire and Support Healthy Eating and Active Living
  2. Foster Mental Health in Our Community
  3. Enhance Collective Capacity to Reduce Preventable Infectious Diseases
  4. Develop an Adaptive Workforce for the Future
  5. Advance Healthy Public Policy

The OPH Strategic Plan 2015-2018 is the result of a fulsome process undertaken by the Board of Health and staff to assess the current environment and identify areas that need enhanced attention. The process included a review of local data, as well as consultation with staff, stakeholders, and the public.
