Comprehensive Community Planning is an ongoing process that enables a community to plan its development in a way that meets its needs and aspirations in all aspects of community life. Indigenous Services Canada has been working in partnership with First Nations on CCP since 2004. CCP can include, but is not limited to, areas such as:
- Land & Resources
- Infrastructure Development
Piapot Comprehensive Community Plan
The PFN Comprehensive Community Plan, last updated in 2020, provides the strategic foundation for more detailed plans and policies as they relate to the various departments within the Piapot First Nation government. Internal strategic plans reflect and encompass the basic principles set in the Plan and are implemented in department policies, programs, and community development.
The provision of housing, rebuilding of the Water Treatment Plant, building a youth center, building a splash park, creating a community garden, creating language programs, and many other initiatives highlighted within the Community Plan are in various stages of planning, development and implementation. While we have been successful in implementing the Plan, it is important that we continue to refine and review the Community Plan, ensuring it remains relevant to the changing needs of the community.
Two years have flown by, and the PFN Comprehensive Community Plan (CCP) review process has now been initiated to ensure a sustainable future for generations to come. Our CCP guides growth, development, resource management, and community planning within our reserve lands, administrative areas, and throughout our traditional territory. Guided by PFN Membership, and with support from community members and residents, the CCP looks to utilize traditional knowledge, teachings, practices, and governance to develop and propose principles and actions to help achieve our vision for the future.
