The critical success factors are equally important and must be balanced when making decisions. 

These factors are important in that one cannot work entirely to achieve the goals set out in CK Plan 2035 without also taking into consideration the costs involved to achieve those goals, that Council and administration operates ethically, and that Council and administration are making decisions that will not later affect Chatham-Kent’s ability to take advantages of future opportunities or cause undue hardship.

Critical to the success of the community strategic plan, CK Plan 2035, will be the municipality's ability to achieve the goals laid out in the four Areas of Strategic Focus, while continuing ti improve Chatham-Kent's quality of life and maintain:

  • Financial Sustainability
  • Open and Transparent Government
  • Resiliency
