Yukon Hospital Corporation (YHC) is embarking this month on the development of its next Strategic Plan (2022 to 2027). Hospital leaders are asking for input and feedback from Yukoners, as the strategic plan helps the organization determine its vision for the future as well as its goals and objectives.
The planning process will take about six months. The initial information gathering phase begins now and will run until early October 2021. The final plan will be ratified by YHC and its Board of Trustees early 2022.
YHC has engaged Strategic Moves, an independent Whitehorse-based consultancy led by Inga Petri, to assist with the 2022-27 strategic plan.
Yukoners have several options to participate in the process:
- Complete an online survey, which will be available until the end of September: Click here to start the survey.
- Visit our consultation website to learn background information, join discussion forums, view interim reports, and share comments on questions as the process unfolds at: www.placespeak.com/YHC2027
- Join us for one of several public engagement and information sessions open to any Yukoner who RSVPs, via Zoom, during September/October
- Prepare a written submission to provide advice on YHC’s plans for the next five years
As part of Yukon Hospitals’ commitment to Indigenize the strategic planning process and its results, Petri has enlisted the help of Dennis Shorty, elder and citizen of Kaska First Nation in Ross River, Christine Genier, citizen of Ta’an Kwäch’än Council in Whitehorse, and Melaina Sheldon, citizen of Teslin Tlingit First Nation.
This team brings knowledge and understanding of the Yukon, Yukoners and Yukon First Nations to the strategic planning process. This knowledge will also be complemented with guidance from Tosh Southwick, Kluane First Nation and Davida Wood, Teslin Tlingit First Nation, of IRP Consulting.
All information about the information gathering and community engagement process is available at www.placespeak.com/YHC2027. Placespeak is a Canadian online platform, purpose-built to host community consultations. Anyone can view a consultation; those who register on the platform can also comment.
